Eilean Donan Castle is one of Scotland’s most popular castles for visitors and photographers because of its unique location . I have published a new range of Eilean Donan Castle mugs which are now on sale online . My favourite image of the castle is included .
The good news about Eilean Donan Castle is that I am hoping the current pandemic will pass its peak in the next 4 weeks which means June or July may be feasible dates for my next trip to the castle .
Eilean Donan means Island of Donan (a religious figure from the 12th century). Eilean Donan was Clan MacKenzie’s most important stronghold from the 13th Century until it was destroyed in 1719. Robert the Bruce was given refuge in Eilean Donan Castle by John MacKenzie, Second of Kintail when he was being hunted by the English at the beginning of the fourteenth century.
