LOCLOCH NESS AND URQUHART CASTLE RUINS
INVERNESS, LOCH NESS SCOTLAND
Enjoy the lovely scenery of typical Scottish glens, each with its own charm as the route continues to Loch Ness. The lake is famous for the Lock Ness monster affectionately known as Nessi. The lock is extremely beautiful, long and narrow with steep wooded banks and a depth of 900 feet in some parts. Travel through the village of Drumnadrochit and on to Urquhart Castle for a visit. Built as both a fortress and a residence, Urquhart provided the lord and those under his protection with a very secure defense. The castle figured prominently in Scotland's struggle for independence in the fourteenth century. IN02
Discover the natural splendor of Powerscourt Estate, set at the foot of Great Sugar Loaf Mountain. Its magnificent gardens — voted No. 3 in the world by National Geographic — feature sweeping terraces, formal hedges, colorful flower beds, herbaceous borders and romantic stretches of water. Even getting there is a soothing, peaceful journey through delightful countryside backed by the picturesque Wicklow Hills, a welcome contrast to Dublin’s hustle and bustle. Feel the grandeur as you drive along the elegant avenue of stately beech trees at the entrance of Powerscourt Estate, planted more than 200 years ago. Enjoy sweeping mountain views as you stroll the terraced Italian Garden, and follow winding paths leading you through the Japanese Garden, making sure to cross the bridges and step inside the pagoda. The nearby grotto dates back to the 1740s; its secret pathways and the sounds of water trickling down moss-covered walls create a dreamy atmosphere. Climb up the steps of Pepperpot Tower — modeled after an actual three-inch pepper pot used at Lord Powerscourt’s dining table — to enjoy wonderful views of the house and gardens. Also, be sure to pay a visit to the pet cemetery to read the touching epitaphs to some of the family’s beloved animals. Your tour also includes time to visit the house. Relax with friends over a cup of tea or coffee at the terrace café. Browse the craft shop for Irish-designed gifts and treasures. Plus explore Tara’s Palace, perhaps one of the most magnificent dollhouses in the world. DB53
