#Thursdaydoors – Dunvegan

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favorite door photos from around the world. Feel free to join in on the fun by creating your own Thursday Doors post each week and then sharing your link in the comments below, anytime between Thursday morning and Saturday noon (North American eastern time). You can join in here: https://miscellaneousmusingsofamiddleagedmind.wordpress.com/2020/07/30/thursday-doors-july-30-2020/

My door pictures this week were taken at Dunvegan Castle and gardens on the Isle of Skye. The castle is built on an elevated rock overlooking an inlet on the eastern shore of Loch Dunvegan. Dunvegan is the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the ancestral home of the Chiefs of Clan MacLeod for 800 years.

Doorway to Fairyland? Door into a squirrel’s hole? You tell me.

Most fortuitously, Sue Vincent wrote a recent post about Dunvegan and the Fairy flag which you can read here: https://scvincent.com/2020/07/28/dreaming-stones-dunvegan-and-the-fairy-flag/

    1. I love visiting old castles and museums too, Jan. That is why we travel to Europe so often. I’ve had it in my mind that I would participate in this particular challenge for a while now so I ensured I took lots of doors pictures when we traveled last year.


    1. I know, isn’t it wonderful. I love that sense of timelessness and history. We really enjoyed Scotland and are hoping that our UK trip will happen next year. After than, we may well be residents of the UK which would be wonderful.

  1. I like these door pictures – and I think I like the plain one in the garden the best because it makes me imagine what is behind it. Our front door is so much less formidable than the first door, but our house is not a castle! Nice post 🙂
