Eilean Donan Castle I

Eilean Donan is regarded as the most romantic of Scotland’s castles, and it’s easy to agree with the sentiment.

Surrounded on four sides by water, the castle is only accessible by its stone bridge.

The views from the towers are amazing, and the inside rooms are basically unchanged from when the last owner lived there. Corridors and hidden alcoves are found on every floor.


The bridge that leads to the castle is a solid stone bridge with set spaces for observation and contemplation.

Took four visits to Scotland to finally get here, but it was worth the wait: Eilean Donan is definitely one of my top five favorite Scottish castles.
