Eilean Donan Castle Visitor Information Guide

Eilean Donan Castle, Dornie, and Kyle of Lochalsh are all places to visit.
Eilean Donan is well-known around the world and is regarded as one of Scotland's most recognisable landmarks.

The castle is a popular and prominent attraction in the Scottish highlands. It is situated on an island at the confluence of three major marine lochs, surrounded by breathtaking scenery.

Eilean Donan is located near the picturesque village of Dornie on the most common route that tourists take to reach the Isle of Skye.

The castle was built in the middle of the 13th century to serve as a watchtower over the Kintail territory; today, it is widely considered as one of Scotland's most iconic emblems. After being partially destroyed by a Jacobite insurrection in 1719, the castle sat in ruins for the following two centuries on an island in the heart of the spot where three of the world's largest water lochs converge. Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap purchased the island in 1911 and began restoring Eilean Donan to its former splendour. Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap renovated the castle and reopened it in 1932.

Throughout the history of the castle, which spans several centuries, at least four distinct iterations of the fortress have been constructed and reconstructed at various points.

In this building, you'll find a Coffee Shop, a Gift Shop, and Tourist Information for the surrounding area.

From the Castle, you can walk to Dornie at the mouth of Loch Long, see the Cuillin mountain range of Skye in the distance across Loch Alsh, or look to the head of Loch Duich towards the dramatic Five Sisters of Kintail. You can also visit the remarkable brochs of Glenelg that were constructed more than 1500 years ago, wander through the Lochalsh Woodland Garden at Balmacara, or climb up to the Falls of Glom.

Built in the middle of the 13th century to keep watch over the lands of Kintail, Eilean Donan was partially destroyed in a Jacobite uprising in 1719. For about 200 years, it was in ruins until Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap purchased the island in 1911 and brought the castle back to its former splendour.
Currently, the castle is accessible to visitors year-round and has a visitor centre.
The Castle is situated in the community of Dornie on Loch Long's seafront. With a multitude of breathtaking hikes nearby and expansive views of the Skye Mountains and the surrounding area, One of the most popular castles in the Scottish Highlands is located on an island where three large sea lochs converge, and it is surrounded by stunning scenery.
