Eilean Donan Castle
Eilean Donan Castle, one of the world’s famous castles, is located in the Doni area of the Scottish highlands. From afar, it seems to be rooted on a small island in the middle of the lake. A stone bridge connects the castle and the land across the lake, the serene lake and the ancient castle constitutes a beauty picture. It is one of the most famous castle in Scotland.
| Distillery Introduction
The Linkwood Distillery was established by Peter Brown in 1821, and officially started operation in 1825. Finally, it was acquired by Diageo. Linkwood also entered into blended whisky, with a clean, soft aroma playing an important role in blending.
| Eilean Donan Castle x Linkwood
Its history can be traced back to 1220 AD, but the original structure of the castle has been destroyed in 1719 and has continued in ruins for more than two centuries. In 1919, Lieutenant Colonel John MacRae-Gilstrap bought it and began restoration work, which was completed in 1932. Like Linkwood Distillery, it has been rebuilt many times and has experienced many twists and turns.
