Eilean Donan Castle
Eilean Donan Castle Review
Guarding the confluence of lochs Long, Alsh, and Duich stands that most picturesque of all Scottish castles, Eilean Donan Castle, perched on an islet connected to the mainland by a stone-arched bridge. Dating from the 14th century, this romantic icon has all the massive stone walls, timber ceilings, and winding stairs that you could ask for. Empty and neglected for years after being bombarded by frigates of the Royal Navy during an abortive Spanish-Jacobite landing in 1719, it was almost entirely rebuilt from a ruin in the early 20th century. The kitchen re-creates the busy scene before a grand banquet, and the upper floors show how the castle was transformed into a grand house. Now the hero of travel brochures, Eilean Donan has appeared in many Hollywood movies and TV shows. There's a shop and a coffeehouse for the many visitors.
