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/

Hello this is a beautiful image! Would you mind sharing where you took the photo from? I have just visited but shot the castle from the waters edge, but I think the angle of your shot is much better. Many thanks, Sam

Thank you! In the 1st photo of this spot I was standing just to the right of the bridge that connects the castle's island with the main land. The image was shot at 24 mm full frame. The 8th photo of this spot was taken at the water's edge. I was standing on the gras there nearly getting my feet wet. That was also the moment when the light was at its best and the colours in the sky really lit up. It was shot at 16 mm full frame. I hope that helps a little.
