It was time for another castle picture. Isn’t this one awesome? It’s on an island with a causeway that runs out to it. I want to book a flight! Then I want to hike those moors behind it.

Beautiful photo of the castle. Appropriate follow-up to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. Not sure I’d want to climb those steep moors.
It does have a Hogwarts feel to it, doesn’t it?
That’s an awesome castle! What is a causeway?
Shall we go see it?
A causeway is a drive built over the water. Kind of a bridge, but low like a road.
You can see the causeway here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Eilean_Donan_Castle_Panorama..jpg
‘Kay, that link doesn’t work right. Try this. Here’s the Wikipedia page. Way at the bottom is a gallery of photos. It’s the first one. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eilean_Donan
I looked at the link. I now realize that I knew what you were talking about, but I didn’t know that it was called that. Thanks for the link and the explanation!
My husband has been to this castle. He says it is amazing. I hope to visit it too some day. great photo!
He’s lucky! I’d love to do a whole tour of Scotland castles.
