Be sure to celebrate the 4th in a special way.

Good luck and enjoy....

Yes, its Eilean Donan Castle near Dornie. It gets a lot of screen time but it was the one used in the Highlander movie. I believe it is the seat of the MacKenzies. In an interesting side note in 1539 the McLeods (also from the movie) attacked it but they never held it.
