Dunvegan Castle


Tour Dunvegan

Dunveqan (Gaelic Dun-bheagan) is a small village on the west coast of the Island of Skye, near the head of Loch Dunvegan. To the north is Dunvegan Castle, ancient stronghold of the Macleods of Skye. Home of the chiefs of Macleod for more than 800 years, its 14th-century keep and 16th century Fairy Tower were connected
in the 17th by Rory Mor (Roderick Macleod). The castle was given its present crenellated profile in 1790 and 1811—14, with further additions in 1840—50. It is open to the public and has many objects on display including the Fairy Flag, a Saracen flag captured on a crusade, and items connected with Prince Charles Edward Stewart.
