Eilean Donan (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Donnain) is a small tidal island where three lochs meet, Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the western Highlands of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. A picturesque 13th Century castle dominates the island. I was told by locals that Eilean Donan is the most photographed castle in the world. It lies about 1 kilometer from the village of Dornie. Since the castle's restoration in the early 20th century, a footbridge has connected the island to the mainland.
