Eilean Donan Castle

Dornie, Scotland

Set in Scotland’s ethereal western Highlands, Eilean Donan Castle has captivated viewers since it was first erected in the 13th century. Perched delicately on an island, its ancient beauty is only magnified by the three lochs surrounding it. Located in the picturesque village of Dornie, on the Isle of Skye, it laid in ruins for 200 years until it was restored to its former glory in 1932. Now a popular destination for tourists seeking old-world respite, the castle has also garnered worldwide fame as a romantic destination wedding venue.
