Having just posted a photo of the Real Eilean Donan Castle, I am compelled by the perverse Imps of Hallowe’en to bring you this New View of an Old Icon. Just beside the venerable castle is the Dornie hall, a place whose carpark is home to recycling & signs for various amenities, & where the weary traveling photographer can find comfort & even something to eat. And maybe an old tire or two. I just loved this – not that I have anything against the reverence in which the historic & beautifully restored castle is held; but there are two sides to every coin, & that’s not a bad thing. In this case it is an entertaining thing. More about the castle’s history can be found via the link at the end of my text for this . And remember, Daleks may insist upon precedence when queuing for the toilets; do not risk extermination.
