Eilean Donan Castle, Scottish Highlands


This is probably the most photographed (and beautiful) castle in Scotland. You’ve likely seen Eilean Donan in movies such as Highlander.   A number of castles have stood on this island for over 1500 years, this newest version having been partially destroyed by a Jacobite uprising in 1719.  The castle was restored in the early 20th century, and it's now a popular tourist attraction.

When we visited the weather was typical of the Scottish Highlands in summer namely cold, windy and wet.  Still, it was a captivating spot that to me captures the essence of the Highlands.
