Britain’s Treasures

This idyllically located castle holds the secrets of a troubled, violent past

One of the most photographed spots in Scotland, Eilean Donan sits on its own tidal island where three lochs meet. Nestled in the Kintail region of the Highlands, this picture-perfect castle was a romantic ruin for nearly 200 years before it was returned to its former splendour. Despite it looking medieval, the current structure only dates back to the early 20th century, although it has been built to resemble its original form.

Its picture-postcard setting makes the castle arguably the most recognisable building in the Highlands

GETTING THERE: Eilean Donan Castle is situated near the village of Dornie, in the western Ross-shire highlands, off the A87.
