Loch Ness

More  than a thousand people claim to have seen the bulbous back of an  unidentified creature briefly break the glassy surface of Loch Ness,  then disappear. This legendary body of water is the country’s second  largest loch, slightly smaller in surface area, though deeper, than Loch  Lomond to its south.

Widely  considered Scotland’s most photographed site, Eilean Donan Castle  perches on an island at the meeting of three lochs in western Scotland.  The island’s first castle was an early 13th-century fortification  against raiding Vikings, and it’s been sacked and rebuilt several times.  The most recent facelift was completed in 1932.

The fact is that the average man’s love of liberty is nine-tenths imaginary, exactly like his love of sense, justice and truth. He is not actually happy when free; he is uncomfortable, a bit alarmed, and intolerably lonely. Liberty is not a thing for the great masses of men. It is the exclusive possession of a small and disreputable minority, like knowledge, courage and honor. It takes a special sort of man to understand and enjoy liberty - and he is usually an outlaw in democratic societies.

A  bridge  to the past leads to a mist-veiled castle in Matsumoto, one of  the best  preserved fortresses from the samurai’s reign, which stretched  from  the late 12th to the mid-19th centuries. Rising to power as  ruthless  soldiers, samurai leaders fancied themselves as sophisticates,  hosting  plays, poetry readings, and tea ceremonies in their lofty  strongholds.
