Dornie has a castle called “Eilean Donan”. It is well known as Scotlands most romantic castle. Lt.Col. McCrae-Gilstrap bought and rebuilt the castle between 1912 & 1932. It is very popular for weddings in their exquisite Banqueting room which can easily cater for 80 to 90 people. After the ceremony you can host a reception in the Billeting room. The guests can then enjoy beautiful views over the loch to Skye from the castle courtyard.

There are great facilities at this site. Car & coach parking, well equipped toilets, gift shop, cafeteria with inside & outside seating areas.

We all had a great day out here and will definitely return here in the future.
