View from Duntulm Castle, Skye

It is a number of years since Duntulm Castle looked so substantial. Once a stronghold of the MacLeods, then the MacDonalds, this Castle, situated on a rocky, exposed promontory has been continually battered by nature to reach a precarious state. This wonderful postcard showing an arch entrance gives a good view of the strategic position the Castle held, with open, clear views of the sea
