Eilean Donan Castle - Recognisable as the backdrop to many films (Highlander, The World Is Not Enough and Elizabeth: The Golden Age), the present castle buildings are entirely the result of 20th-century reconstruction. The destruction of the castle occurred in 1715, when a 300 strong party of Spanish soldiers who had taken the castle came under attack from the Royal Navy.

Eilean Donan castle, Scotland. The castle was founded in the thirteenth century, and became a stronghold of the Clan Mackenzie and their allies the Clan Macrae. In the early eighteenth century the Mackenzies' involvement in the Jacobite rebellions led in 1719 to the castle's destruction by government ships. Lieutenant-Colonel John Macrae-Gilstrap's twentieth-century reconstruction of the ruins produced the present buildings.
