Gates at Dunvegan Castle

The pair of square crenellated gatepiers pictured here support wrought iron gates with a Celtic motif. Together they mark the entrance to the driveway to Dunvegan Castle. A lower pier sits alongside; this is the pedestrian entrance. The gatepiers were erected in 1938 by tenants and Macleod clansmen, in memory of three Macleod brothers, Norman Magnus, Reginald and Roderick.
