Dunstaffnage Castle

The stronghold of the MacDougalls and built before 1240 on a huge rock above the Firth of Lorn. It was captured by Robert the Bruce in 1308, and remained in royal hands until 1469.

Flora MacDonald was held at Dunstaffnage in 1746 before being sent to the Tower of London for aiding Bonnie Prince Charlie’s escape.

@phil_howcroft @joysfocus @yorkshirekiwi @happysnaps @gardenfolk @onewing @casablanca Thanks for commenting. I went hoping to get a view that included the Loch as well, but it seems to have to be on top of the castle to see that!! Oh well.

Such amazing history, almost as if your shot takes us back in time. I wonder what it must have looked like back in the day? So glad it's still here...
