Eileen Donan Castle Castles Next

Eileen Donan Castle is located in the highlands of Scotland along the shores of Loch Duich.  It is a beautiful castle in a scenic setting.  There is not doubt why this is one of the most photographed castles in the world.  The castle has been used as a setting for the movie "Highlander".  In one of the early scenes of the movie you will see Connor MacLeod and his kinsman crossing the bridge from the castle to the mainland.   The public areas in the interior of the castle are remarkable because their furnishings and decor have a strong medieval flavor to them.  The great hall, in particular, is impressive.  You almost feel as if you have gone back in time while wandering the corridors of the castle.  If you are a fan of castle architecture, like me, then you will appreciate the working portcullis mechanism that is on display for opening and closing the grating on the main gate.
