Eilean Donan Castle
An original painting by Stanley Port: Acrylics on Box Canvas, 50 x 70 cm (20 x 28 inches).
This Painting is NOT for Sale.


This is just one of three paintings of this castle painted by Stanley Port - this is a view looking inland toward the southeast. Eilean Donan Castle is one of Scotland's most-photographed castles. It has a strategic location at the junction of sea lochs Alsh, Long and Duich in the western Highlands, and a few miles north of Shiel Bridge. It was built on a small offshore island and is linked to the shore by a narrow stone bridge. The tall crenelated tower is surrounded by majestic mountains, which form a beautiful background. The original castle dates back to 1230 and was built to protect this area from the Vikings. During the Jacobite uprising in 1719 it was occupied by troops from Spain, but was then blown up during an English sea-borne attack. Rebuilt in the early 1900s, Eilean Donan Castle has been featured in major films and is visited by crowds of tourists.
