So dramatic, against the sea...

A fantastic place to put a castle isn't it? :)

Utterly. How gothic, looking out the castle windows out at the north sea...

I've been here ! It's amazing......I have similar pics from this same vantage point :-) I remember I had hiked up to Ben Nevis the day before and I was very sore walking up the steps to the castle.

The day after I climb d Ben Nevis I went to the Isle Of Skye. I found it hurt more to walk down hill than up hill.

Is that where Skara Brae and the Callanish stone circles are located ? I guess it's a long ferry ride to Isle of Skye ? 

Have you done some shooting in Ireland ? I took a bunch of stone circle pics (Lough Gur, etc.) in Kerry and Cork.

Ah
well Callanish is on the Isle of Lewis in the outer hebrides 
Skara Brae is on Orkney which is a different set of islands

you can go by ferry to Skye from a couple of places
it's not that far really
they have built a bridge from the mainland now which is from Kyle of Localsh

I have never been to Ireland :shakehead:

Striking image with the castle standing on cliffs that drop sheer to the sea.
