Scotland has beautiful castles in their country, and one of them is Eilean Donan. Eilean Donan is probably one of the most famous castles in Scotland.
Eilean Donan is one of the most iconic imagines for Scotland and is one of the most visited attractions in Scotland. Eilean Donan is situated on the island with the same name, Eilean Donan. It is probably named after Donnán av Eigg who tried to bring Christianity to Scotland.
Some parts of the castle were destroyed in the year 1719 during the Jacobite uprising and were in ruins in about 200 years. It's now rebuilt thanks to John MacRae-Gilstrap who bought it in the year 1911.
The castle is beautiful and for myself I really would like to see it. The castle has guided tours that you can go to and get information and other facts about it.

So does this sound interesting? Why not consider go there! And when you're already in Scotland, why not visit a few other cool places. Like go watch horse racing, go on an adventure and much more! There are so many things to do in Scotland.
So let's say you go to Scotland and visit Eilean Donan and then you go to some fancy restaurant and drink some Scottish scotch. Then what? I would recommend you to go to a lot of places but the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh is really cool. If you like nature, this is a must visit!
The Royal Botanic Garden is in Edinburgh and has existed since 1670. It has unusual and really beautiful plants and the garden is also really big. The garden is open all year and it is also free to visit the garden. Just like the castle Eilean Donan the garden has guided tours and you can also go on cool events there. The Garden has a lot of different plants, over 13 302 different species!

But why go to Scotland to visit castles and gardens when that already exists in Sweden? Well, to start with, the Swedish castles are not like the Scottish ones. Like you maybe understand, the Swedish culture is not like the Scottish culture. It's the same with the castles. Also the Swedish gardens and Scottish gardens is not like each other, they are also different. Because of the history in each country, the tourist attractions may be different from each other. To every new country you go to, it will be different kinds of attractions, culture and more. That's why you should visit these places, because it's very cool and different from what you may be used to!
Lots of love, Liv
