Eilean Donan Castle might be the most famous castle in Scotland and the most popular attraction in the Highlands. It is located where three lochs meet (Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh) on a promontory which becomes a small island at high tide and is connected to the main land with a nice bridge. The castle is dated back to 1220 and was rebuilt between 1919 and 1932.

The castle can be visited. For more information visit: http://www.eileandonancastle.com/
