Well, after a splendid day - bit of wrenching on the bike in the dining room, bit of assembly of the lathe in the spare bedroom, went and met my local RAT pack for the first time (won the trivia quiz - excellent!), I am now comfortable, with a home brewed pale ale, and a hefty measure of said Balvenie portwood. And after this - perchance a Talisker 25 year old? mmmm yum.
HiDesert, that's Eilean Donan castle, along the west coast of Scotland near the Isle of Skye. Yes, you can go inside, but the day we were there it was closed because of the high winds.
The first part of the movie used this castle as the setting for the village of Glenfinnan, where Connor McLeod was supposed to have been born. The set for the village was in the area now occupied by the visitor center and parking lot.
As an aside, Glenfinnan is south of Eilean Donan, at the head of Loch Shiel. That was another of our stops, but not because of the link to Highlander.
