A running joke we had when we went on this Highlands tour was from an episode of South Park where Chef’s parents keep encountering the Loch Ness monster, asking them for “tree-fiddy“, three dollars and fifty cents.

The price of admission to Urquhart Castle on Loch Ness? £3.80. Coincidence? I think not.

While we were at Loch Ness, it stopped drizzling and the rainclouds started to break up. The rest of the castle ruins are shown in silhouette.

In the construction rubble was this piece of Old Red sandstone was this serpentine calcite inclusion that looks suspiciously like a certain lake resident.
