we drove back to fort williams thinking of having lunch at lime tree restaurant to relish the fine dinner place last evening but it was closed.
we drove on to isles of skye stopping at Eilean Donan Castle (fondly called dornie) enroute. it was a close to 2hrs drive.
after dornie castle, we drove on to skye bridge & cross over to isles of skye, and it was a short 35mins to our duisdal house hotel in sleat, the southern peninsula where the ferry crosses from from mallaig to armadale.
the mid 13th century castle stood guard over the lands of Kintail.
it was restored when Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap bought the island in 1911, and castle was re-opened in 1932.
The castle is a popular location for films, TV, advertisements, fashion shoots and music videos.
after dornie, we drove on to isles of skye & checked into our hotel for the night, duisdale house hotel.
