🏰I love old buildings with all my heart, especially doors. Whenever I wander someplace new, I always wonder. "What would these walls have seen? Who would've walked through these doors? Who might've skipped along the hallways with joy, or spent long, cold nights in front of this fireplace...?" It makes me wish I could time travel, and it has me making up a million stories, scenarios and possibilities in my head... Something I also often experience, about which I'm not sure if it's strange yes or no, is I tend to sense moods? Energies might be a better word. The most recent experience was rather unpleasant. I was exploring a castle, though there was one room of which no one was sure what it was used for. I entered, curious of what could be there. Though as soon as I did, I felt as if I was being suffocated. I suddenly felt hot, felt pressure on my chest and temples and I had trouble breathing. My head started spinning and I became a bit dizzy. Needless to say I rushed out again, after which the feeling dissapeared as quickly as it came. Later I found out the room had supposedly been used as a dungeon... I think that might've been why I suddenly felt so awful. What are your thoughts?
Oversaturated Magic 🌅🗻🏰 How beautiful are nature and Scotland? 😍 Need to learn to enjoy these moments and the amazing people (and pup) I am lucky to experience them with more than being obsessed with capturing (and posting) them - tips welcome
• Eilean Donan Castle, Scotland •
DID YOU KNOW ?
The Eilean Donan Castle is the romantic icon of Scotland and one of the most recognizable castles in the country. Because of its dreamy, beautiful and picturesque façade, the Eilean Donan Castle is one of the most photographed castles and is a popular venue for wedding shoots and film locations. It has been featured in many movies such as Highlander, Lochness, The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Made of Honor. Most of you are probably familiar just by seeing the silhouette of it.
-------------------------------- The Eilean Donan Castle has quite a story to tell. It had a long history, and it was initially built in the 1200s as a defense against the notorious Vikings. Afterwards, the castle housed the Mackenzies of Kintail (later called the Earls of Seaforth). In the 18th century, the castle was occupied by Spanish troops, only to be recaptured by the Royal Navy frigates. The castle is currently home to the Highland Scottish clan, the Macrae family.
This beautiful castle was able to withstand centuries of a long, tumultuous history. The castle is a product of incredible devotion and determination to the people who tried their best to protect it.

It's been a busy few days of hiking around the highlands, but I wouldn't have it any other way! Any exciting plans for the weekend?
FYI, this is my favourite angle of this castle.

I love WordPress, but my god does it get buggy sometimes. My first lot of Scotland photos are up on my blog after a bit of trial and error. I'm sharing Skye photos this week and the remainder of the Highlands next week. Link in stories. ☺️

Now as castles go this is a real goodun! Eilean Donan is a 13th Century castle located on a tiny island in the middle of three lochs and it is epic (especially when covered in snow!).
