Eilean Donan Castle

This castle at Kyle of Lochalsh, is just stunning. The original castle was built in 1511, but destoyed in 1719. The current castle was rebuilt between 1912 and 1932.
The kids in a window of the castle....after I took the photo, Alexander then told me I wasn't allowed to take photos in the castle. At least the kids can read the sign!
So, I didn't get any photos of the stunning evening gowns they had on display. Although the doorways are so narrow, I have no idea how the ladies of the time managed to get in and out of their rooms!
The tour guides in each room were really great, and the kids had some great questions for them about different objects and parts of the rooms. Which proved that we hadn't bored the kids silly with all the castles we had already taken them to!
Alan playing the role of Rupenzel.....or Juliet, not sure which!
Alex the tour guide let the kids hold this gun.....making sure it was not loaded first!!!
