Eilean Donan Castle

A story behind: Scotland has always been a must-visit place for me. Eilean Donan castle and its surroundings are the essence of Scotland. Located on the small island with neighboring gentle hills, friendly local people, salted water loch and the way the light plays in the evening - it all was top quality.
We stayed in the area 3 long and beautiful days escaping the main roads, searching for light, good food and countryside views.
The picture was taken 20 minutes after the sunset. At these latitudes in mid-summer it really never gets dark at night.

The photo was awarded a High Gallery on and on the front page of
