Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most photographed castles in Scotland . The reason for that is simple - it looks stunning at almost any time of year . The castle is on an island in the middle of the point where 3 lochs meet . It is surrounded by mountains and the Isle of Skye is lurking in the background ( especially if you climb the hill overlooking the castle - you can photograph the castle with Skye in the background ). The castle is well worth a visit if you like history and ancient buildings or just as a beautiful place to wander around for a couple of hours . The castle has a rich history . It is full of informative notice boards with details of the history of each room . You can even get married inside the castle . It has also been featured in many films including the 1999 James Bond film, "The World is Not Enough,"  and in the original 1984 "Highlander" film .

The castle is only open to the public from early March to early November, has a great retail outlet and a fabulous Coffee shop.
