The search engine company Google has designed a tricycle for collecting images at historic landmarks and places not easily accessible by car.

It has already been used at Stonehenge and the Eden Project.

Urquhart Castle on the banks of Loch Ness, was once one of Scotland's largest castles.

Its 500-year history includes falling under English control following Edward I's invasion and being captured by Robert the Bruce in 1308.

It was ransacked during raids by the MacDonald, Lords of Isles in the 15th and 16th centuries.

It is now owned by Historic Scotland.
