The Eilean Donan (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Donnain) is a small intertidal peninsula where the three lakes Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh converge in the west Highlands of Scotland. It is dominated by a scenic castle, often seen in photos, films and on TV, about 1 km from the town of Dornie.

A pedestrian bridge has been connecting the castle with the land since its renovation at the beginning of the twentieth ct. Willam Mackenzie, Earl of Seaforth 5, entered the Jacobite armies and led men of Clan Mackenzie and Clan Macrae out. Then the Macraes gathered at Eilean Donan and were said to have been dancing on the top of the castle before leaving for the Battle of Sheriffmuir, where 58 Macraes were killed among the Jacobites.

The Clan MacRae plaque on the site of Eilean Donan Castle, which was added during the work. The Eilean Donan Castle underwent several stages of evolution from the early fortresses of the thirteenth centuries to their demolition in 1719 and ensuing rebuilding in the twentieth cen. In 1719, the castle was almost completely demolished, after which almost 200 years went by before the rebuilding work began.

Though some archeological remains were found on the site, much of the materials were wasted during the restoration work, making it hard to get a clear view of the early castle. Skip up to: a b National Records of Scotland (15 August 2013) (pdf) Statistical Bulletin: Accessed August 17, 2013.
