The broken walls of Urquhart Castle – poster
Is Scotland overrated or just misunderstood?
If we could “see oorsels as ithers see us” what would we see? Well, thanks to the wonders of the interwebs we can and apparently some of Scotland’s loveliest places… kinda suck.
Hilariously bad reviews
It seems some of the visitors to our shores have misunderstood what they came to see and then they've written a review to prove it. The Overrated Scotland collection features some choice quotes from those reviews, paired with the gorgeous locations they describe. Sometimes the truth is hilarious.
About this location
"They make you pay to go inside and see some broken walls."
Located on the western shore of Loch Ness near the village of Drumnadrochit, the ruins of this castle date from the 13th to 16th century. It was partly destroyed to prevent it being used by Jacobites in 1692 and deteriorated from then on. It is now one of the most-visited castles in the country.
The drawing takes inspiration from vintage travel posters, particularly ones created during the inter-war period. The overlaid text is a wide-spaced sans-serif typeface that has a definite London Underground map feeling to it. The original drawing can be found in the Landscapes collection.
