A fan of castles and mediaeval time? Then Scotland is your country to visit. Most of you will know about the country’s numerous castles, but you probably haven’t heard of Eilean Castle, one of the Highlands’ main attractions and, for sure, one of the most iconic castles in Scotland. Owned by MacRae family, the castle is located on an island and surrounded by the awe-inspiring mountains of Kintail. It was first a monastic cell and didn’t become a castle until the 13th century in an attempt to protect the area from Viking invasions. In the 18th century the castle was bombarded to finally be reconstructed between 1912 and 1932.
Immerse yourself in this historic treasure by walking around the castle rooms and discover Jacobean artefacts, displays of weapons and fine art.
