Shadows on a castle wall…….   1 comment

The Trustees have always felt strongly about ensuring public access to the castle regardless whether we’re open or closed. Even after dark, you will seldom find the gates locked or access denied. The only time this happens is if we are hosting a film shoot or private event.

As such, after the front door is locked each night at 6 o’clock many people still enjoy a stroll around the walls of the castle. Indeed, in the summer months, hundreds of people will still be crossing the bridge until well after midnight.

Now as most of you will already know, the castle is illuminated at night, and this offers many, many people the ideal opportunity to have some fun. My house overlooks the castle, and guaranteed almost every fine night is a sight that always brings a smile to my face. Thousands of people love to play giant sized shadow puppets on the outer walls, and some of the things we observe are just truly priceless! I firmly believe that there exists a big kid in each of us, and the temptation for a lot of people is just too hard to resist. It certainly was for recent visitor and Eilean Donan Facebook fan Craig Doogan and his friends, whose photo I attach below.

Try it for yourself next time you visit and unleash that big kid inside!
