It is thought that the MacRaes first came to Kintail in the 14th century
having previously earned a reputation as fighting men while in the service of the Lovats.
Having agreed to render the same service to the Mackenzie's in return for lands in Kintail
The MacRaes became the Constables of Eilean Donan Castle.
The most photographed Castle in the world having also been featured in the Highlander and James Bond films.
Supported by the Spanish it was used in the first Jacobite uprising in 1719, who used the castle as their magazine
Magnificently situated at the meeting of three lochs - Loch Long, Loch Alsh and Loch Duich
Following the failure of the 1719 Jacobite Rebellion - in which all the fighting was restricted to Eilean Donan Castle and Glen Shiel -
3 British frigates later sailed into Loch Duich and totally destroyed the castle
It then laid in ruin for the best part of 200 years
Eilean Donan Castle remained neglected, abandoned and open to the elements.

Until Lt Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap bought the island in 1911, along with his Clerk of Works, Farquhar MacRae, they dedicated the next 20 years of their lives to the reconstruction of Eilean Donan
 Restoring her to her former glory according to surviving ground plans and was completed in 1932

This excursion is a good drive through the very wild and scenic Highlands of Scotland, so disembarking the Ship as soon as possible
