Dunvegan Castle is a preserved castle on a rocky promontory on the shores of Loch Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye. The seat of the MacLeod of MacLeod clan chief, it is the oldest castle in Scotland to be continuously inhabited and has been the MacLeod family home for 800 years.
Visitors to the castle today can tour the castle and estate, as well as stroll through the 5 acres of castle gardens, take a boat trip on Loch Dunvegan or get lost in the maze of the Dunvegan Cup.
The castle is open from the end of March to October and has many additional attractions such as a café and gift shop as well as being a wedding venue and offering self-catering accommodation in its estate cottages.
