Dunvegan Castle occupies a rocky promontory in the north-west of the Isle of Skye, surrounded by stunning scenery. It has been the home of the chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years and is packed full of history and legend. Among the heirlooms kept at the castle are the Dunvegan Cup, the mysterious Fairy Flag and Sir Rory Mor's Horn. There are also reasonably extensive gardens.
