Dunvegan Castle has been the stronghold of the Chiefs of MacLeod
for nearly 800 years and it remains their home. Built on a rock
once surrounded entirely by salt water, it is unique in Scotland
as the only house of such antiquity to have retained its family
and its roof throughout the centuries, surviving the extremes of
feast and famine, the intermittent periods of warring with
neighbouring clans, and the immense changes of social, political
and economic life through which the Western Highlands and
Islands have passed.
Any visit to
this enchanted Isle must be deemed incomplete without savouring
the wealth of history offered by Dunvegan Castle.
