Eilean Donan Castle 2 by CitizenFresh Eilean Donan Castle 2 by CitizenFresh
Eilean Donan is a small tidal island, where three Lochs meet, Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch ALSH, in the Western Highlands of Scotland; the reconstruction of the castle in the early 20th century, the island footbridge merged with the mainland. The picturesque castle, which often appears in photographs, film and television dominates the island, which lies about 1 km (0.62 miles) from the village of Dornie. Eilean Donan is part of the Kintail National Scenic Area, one of 40 in Scotland. In 2001 the island had a recorded population of only one person, but it was not "regular people" at the time of the census of 2011 Eilean Donan Castle, which simply means "island Donnan", derived from the Donnan of Eigg, Celtic saint martyred in 617 Donnan said that established a church on the island, although there is no trace of this remains. The castle was built in the thirteenth century and became the stronghold of Clan Mackenzie and its allies Clan MacRae. In the early eighteenth century commitment MacKenzies' in the Jacobite rebellion in 1719 led to the destruction of the castle by government ships. Twentieth-century reconstruction of Lieutenant Colonel John Macrae-Gilstrap in the ruins of the produced current buildings. PLEASE enlarge the image!

OK this is going to be geeky... but if I remember rightly the scene with the bridge, comes in from a similar angle, then sweeps up and onto it.
For anyone who's a big fan, it's an instantly recognisable place. One day I'll get there to see it up close :)

I don't think I have ever seen the castle from this angle before. It makes it look completely different. I am not sure I would have even recognized it without the name.
