Castle
“Make your first pictures even before crossing the Skye Bridge and stop at the famous Eilean Donan Castle. As one of the most iconic places of Scotland, is recognised all around the world. Walk over the old stone bridge to the castle at the point where three great sea lochs meet and enjoy the beautiful views of the majestic scenery. ”

Meal Takeaway
“If you ask at An Praban you might get a local fisherman to get you some fresh catch. Anyone in the area is allowed to catch their own, for home consumption, and might have a crab or lobster spare. More reliably, go to this place in Kyle of Lochalsh and say Morag sent you. Much of seafood consumed across the continent is caught in Scottish waters and exported - catch it at its freshest. Morag is pronounced 'moor-ag'.”
