Eilean Donan Castle

Photos can be deceiving. We pictured Eilean Donan Castle as a castle in the middle of nowhere, serenely in tact but when you show up you realize there is a significant parking lot and a town right next to it. These are just conveniently left out of photos.

The castle is still owned by a family and apparently there was a family wedding there over the summer. There are some private quarters not opened to the public where the family stays on their visit.

The castle has been featured in Highlander and Braveheart.

The tour takes you through the grand areas of the castle and the servant quarters. It does have quite a unique setting, situated almost entirely surrounded by water. There is a guest cottage nearby that is available for rent on a weekly basis.
