Copyright © 2005 Thomas G. Brown

Eilean Donan is a small island in Loch Duich,
in the western Highlands of Scotland not far from Skye.
The Vikings called Skye 'the Cloud.'
In Gaelic, it becomes Eilean a' Cheo - the Isle of Mist.
Eilean Donan Castle was founded in the 13th century
but has been in ruins since the Jacobite rebellion of 1719.
