The MacLeod Tables and Dunvegan Castle, Isle of Skye

The two distinctive flat topped hills of Healabhal Mhor (468m) on the right, and Healabhal Bheag (488m), known as MacLeod's Tables, are seen in the background behind Dunvegan Castle, seat of the Clan Chief of the MacLeods. The castle and its gardens are a hugely popular tourist attraction on Skye, as well as being the spiritual "home" of Clan members scattered throughout the world. The dungeon, Sea Gate and Keep are reminders of the castle's long past, while inside, the paintings, fascinating antiques, archives and Jacobite associated artefacts relate to the Clan's many connections with Highland, and indeed Scottish, history.
