It ended up being a bit stormy during the time we were at Eilean Donan Castle. They often have multiple seasons in a day though, so it probably cleared up within an hour of this. I don’t even think kayakers in the background were expecting this blunder.
I have been to the castle four times now, and never once in side. I believe it is the most “filmed” castle. I know that I see it all of the time in movies. We were recently watching, Maid of Honor, with Patrick Dempsey, and I was pointing out to my family that the castle is surrounded by water, but in the movie, it was surrounded by forest. Funny stuff!
