Scotland's Most Photographed Castle

You will never forget the first time you set eyes on the stunning Eilean Donan Castle.

Once a stronghold of the Clan Mackenzie and their allies the Clan MacRae, the iconic castle is now often seen in photographs, film and television. It is one of the most popular attractions in the Highlands. 

The castle is nestled perfectly where three great lochs meet, and also overlooks the Isle of Skye. The Skye Bridge is only approximately 10 miles from Dornie, the village next to the castle.
