DUNTULM (Gaelic: Fort Hill)
The wonderful natural defenses at Duntulm Castle, the ancient seat of the MacDonalds, clearly demonstrate why this piece of land has such a long record of settlement.

Once the site of a Pictish fortress and part of a chain of fortress settlements along the north coast. It became the headquarters of a powerful Viking warlord after the Norse invasion of the Isles. Later, Master of the Isles, Donald Gorm took Duntulm for his home and was responsible for a great deal of building and development of the castle.

The castle looks out over the Minch, and on a clear day affords spectacular views of the outer islands.
