While looking through my early photographs on the computer, I found a couple of other half-decent shots I had taken of this national icon on my travels. Not large photos, as I had to crop them.
On the road from Inverness to the Isle of Skye, this ancient structure in the Lochalsh area of Wester Ross) is another of the most photographed buildings in Scotland.
The home of Clan MacRae, it is located near Kyle of Lochalsh, on Loch Duich across from the former Dornie Ferry with the hills of Kintail, and Glenshiel, in the background (that's enough pipe tunes for now!!)
Taken from the (less popular but better, in my humble opinion) opposite (Ardelve) side of Long Long (adjacent to Dornie Bridge), at the point where the 3 Lochs meet - Long, Duich and Alsh.
If you recall the film Highlander starring Christopher Lambert as Conner MacLeod and Sean Connery as the spaniard, some of it was filmed around (and on ) the Castle.
