Eilean Donan Castle
“There can be only one!” – Connor MacLeod
One of the main things I wanted to see while in Scotland was Eilean Donan Castle. This was over a four hour trek to Dornie, Kyle of Lochalsh on the Northwestern Coast of Scotland. Is seeing a castle worth the journey? Absolutely! This journey was driven by my fandom of the 1986 cult classic movie “Highlander”. The movie starred Christopher Lambert and Sean Connery. It was also featured prominently in the following films/TV: Bonnie Prince Charlie (1948), The Master of Ballantrae (1953), The New Avengers (1976) TV, Highlander (1986), The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1985), Mio in the Land of Faraway (1987), Loch Ness (1995), Oliver’s Travels (1995) TV, Kuch Kuch Hota Hai (1998), The World Is Not Enough (1999), Kandukondain Kandukondain (2000), Elizabeth: The Golden Age (2007), Made of Honor (2007).
