Dunvegan Castle Garden blossom

This pale purple daisy graced the Dunvegan Castle gardens on the rainy day that we visited while on vacation in Scotland in September. The castle is on the Waternish peninsula on the majestic Isle of Skye. The castle is the longest continuously inhabited castle in the United Kingdom, where Clan McLeod still maintains base. It’s built on an elevated rock overlooking an inlet on the eastern shore of the sea loch, Loch Dunvegan. Probably a fortified site from the earliest times, the castle was first built in the 13th century and developed piecemeal over the centuries. Below are some additional photos of the castle and gardens.

This fall to celebrate travel, I’m highlighting photos that thejoyfulleye of mine took on our recent vacation to Scotland – if you missed it, other photos include: Urquart Castle and Meet Tony.

  1. Such beautiful photos and flowers. We had to cancel our long-awaited trip to Scotland last summer due to the pandemic crisis – can’t wait to go back one day once the world restores order 😊
