Eilean Donan castle regularly contends for the top billing on the “most beautiful Scottish castles” list, so even though it was a bit out of the way for our whisky itinerary, I made a point to steer in its direction.
The castle, dating from the 13th century, has been extensively rebuilt in the first half of the 20th, and presents a well-maintained look into the history of Scottish highlands. A dramatic location at the conjunction of three lochs undoubtedly adds to its overall charm.
I am not a big fan of interior photography, so here are a few exterior perspectives of the castle and the lochs.
