Photos of Eilean Donan Castle, Loch Duich, Scottish Highlands

About Eilean Donan

Eilean Donan is one of the most famous castles in Scotland. Located on an islet in Loch Duich and connected to the shore via a stone bridge, the setting is particularly scenic. The charm of Eilean Donan turns it into a tourist hotspot, some might even say a tourist trap. Most tourists stop here for a few minutes on the way to Wester Ross or Skye. While the original Eilean Donan castle was built in 1220, it was subsequently demolished during the Jacobite Rising. It was restored in early 20th century. The castle is, therefore, hardly an old building. Eilean Donan has been used as a filming location in many movies, including Highlander.
