A long time to be alone by LordLJCornellPhotos A long time to be alone by LordLJCornellPhotos
There is little that remains of Dunscaith Castle but what there is lies here at Tokavaig on the Sleat peninsula on the Isle Of Skye. You can imagine how fine it once may have looked with the beautiful Cuillins as its backdrop.
Here it stands with the snow on the peaks and a chill wind in the air.
 "Originally the castle belonged to the Clan MacDonald of Sleat . During the 14th century it was taken from them by the Clan MacLeod but was recaptured by the MacDonalds in the 15th century. In the 15th century the castle was captured by King James I of Scotland, although the MacDonalds were allowed to keep possession of the castle. The MacDonalds abandoned the castle in the early 17th century."

I spent about four nights there some years ago and saw two people hiking and a man who let me borrow his bino's for a little while. It was so silent and peaceful, I ony left when I started running low on drinking water. I had some things to ponder over at the time and had it all sorted by the time I left...blissfully there was precious little phone signal affording me even greater pleasure. ;)
