Ok... This is just the ruin of a 14/15th century castle.... but.... with the use of a little imagination.... you could envisage life as it may have been on this wind swept headland. Beautiful scenery.... Kids much prefer ruins to actual habitable castles... They somehow...More

Castle built in the 14th and 15th century, North coast of Isle of Skye. During the 17th century, it was the seat of the chiefs of Clan MacDonald of Sleat.

Usual single track road up to here with little parking when you do arrive. Not much of the castle left but worth a couple of photos. Nothing else here so wouldn’t plan on spending more than half an hour.

There's not a lot left of the castle, but if you do a little research and visit at low tide you can find dinosaur footprints on the beach nearby.

Duntulm castle has a long history but now it`s completely in ruins. Not that well preserved either. It was forbidden to visit the ruins in July, because it was dangerous. Didn`t seem to matter to people. If you are driving by, worth to strech your...More
