Scottish charm

“The Scottish Highlands are incredible. There seems to be magic and poetry everywhere.”

— Caitriona Balfe

From our hotel we see the island of Eilean Munde, site of a graveyard once used by the Stewarts of Ballaculish, the MacDonalds of Glencoe and the Camerons of Callart. The clans shared the island and its maintenance even when there was conflict between them.  (Island photos by Jan Logozzo © 2018)
