This model is a depiction of the iconic ruins of the Grant Tower at Urquhart Castle, overlooking Loch Ness. The Grant Tower is a fortified red sandstone tower house of five stories, where the Lords and their families lived and entertained guests. The towers South wall collapsed during a storm in the early 18th century

In 1509 the Crown gave Urquhart Castle as a gift to the Clan Grant, whose ownership lasted until 1912. During this period the MacDonalds captured the castle in1545 and it was also captured by a Covenanter force in 1644. The castle was largely destroyed in 1692 by Williamite Troops who had been holding the castle against Jacobite forces. The intention was to ensure that the castle could not become a Jacobite stronghold. It was an intention that was fully achieved as the castle was never repaired and it remained a ruin. Subsequent plundering of the stonework for re-use by the locals as well as natural decay, further reduced the ruins.
