Celtic Castle I
> make enquiry
Eilean Donan is recognised as one of the most iconic images of Scotland all over the world. Situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some majestic scenery, it is little wonder that the castle is now one of the most visited and important attractions in the Scottish Highlands.
Although first inhabited around the 6th century, the first fortified castle was built in the mid 13th century and stood guard over the lands of Kintail. Since then, at least four different versions of the castle have been built and re-built as the feudal history of Scotland unfolded through the centuries.
From the Artist:
“Eilean Donan I visited last year on a romantic trip to the Highlands. The position of this Castle as its sits prominent of and surrounded by ever dramatic sea and mountain is something. It was a grey day and the rain seems to add to the experience. My nuanced acrylic wash is warmed with bronze and golds as an ode to the richness and haunting grandeur of this fitting tribute to Eilean Donan.”
