Visit to Eilean Donan Castle - Barge Scottish Highlander

The Spectacular Eilean Donan Castle - Hotel Barge Scottish Highlander (2:35)

We drive through Glen Moriston and stunning Highland countryside to romantic medieval Eilean Donan Castle, setting for the film Highlander. It has an idyllic island setting with commanding views of three sea lochs and frequent sightings of otters, dolphins and the Isle of Skye.

Eilean Donan, which means simply "island of Donnán", is named after Donnán of Eigg, a Celtic saint martyred in 617. Donnán is said to have established a church on the island, though no trace of this remains.

The castle was founded in the thirteenth century, and became a stronghold of the Clan Mackenzie and their allies the Clan MacRae.
