As many of you will know Scotland is renowned for its iconic castles and I was fortunate to put that reputation to the test during my trip to Skye. My trip took me to the 14th century ruins of Duntulm castle on the Trotternish peninsula, then to Dunvegan castle, the home for 800 years to the chiefs of Clan MacLeod and finally (or so I thought), to the 15th century ruins of Castle Moil in the village of Kyleakin. However, I realised that the route home would take us via Eilean Donan, one of the most admired castles in Scotland and admittedly my favourite. It can only be described as beautiful, situated on an island in Loch Duich, surrounded by stunning scenery. If you ever have the opportunity to visit the Isle of Skye and its environs, please make sure you take time to visit what I can now confirm are most certainly extremely impressive historical monuments.
