Eilean Donan Castle

This must surely be one of Scotland’s most picturesque castles situated, as it is, on a rocky promontory overlooking Loch Duich. The island on which the castle stands is named after St Donan who lived here around 600AD – Eilean Donan.


King Alexander II had a castle built in 1220, which later became a stronghold of the Clan MacKenzie. In 1719 Government warships destroyed the castle after Spanish troops were garrisoned there in support of the 1715 up-rising.

The castle that we see today was rebuilt in the 1920’s to the original design. A souvenir photograph of this most romantic castle will be amongst your most treasured memories of your time in Scotland.
