Armadale, Eilean Donan

Aug 10, 2019 - Lord of the Glens


It has been an incredible voyage aboard Lord of the Glens. It was our last day together, and we spent it at Armadale, the spiritual home of the McDonald Clan, and Eilean Donan, the most iconic castle one could imagine in Scotland. The first part of the day was spent walking among the incredible flower gardens at Armadale, which are renowned for their beauty. Then, at Eilean Donan, we had a tour of the iconic medieval castle where many modern-day movies have been filmed. On our way back to the ship, we stopped at Plockton, a small seaside town where we were excited to see a local festival and treated to some wonderful music and dancing in the center of town.

About the Author

Steve Morello

Naturalist/Certified Photo Instructor

Steve Morello has had a long and colorful career in the natural history world. Born in New Jersey he was lucky to be able to summer on the shores of Cape Cod. Whether it was exploring the tidal pools, snorkeling along the beach, or hiking in the dunes, it all came together to instill in him a deep connection to the natural world. It was no surprise that he would return to the Cape as a whale researcher in his adult years. It was on the Cape that Steve first became involved in guiding, and for 15 years acted as naturalist on whale watching boats in the Gulf of Maine. Steve worked with groups creating environmental education material for school programs and soon found another one of his passions, photography.
