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.
