What people are saying:

Dunvegan Castle is a castle located in Dunvegan on the Isle of Skye on the west coast of Scotland. This is the seat of McLeod, the head of the McLeod family. Dunvegan Castle is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland and has been the center of the MacLeod family for nearly 800 years. Before Scotland and England merged to form Great Britain, the many islands in northwest Scotland were mainly controlled by two powerful clans. MacLeod and MacDonald. The war between the two clans has been going on for almost a thousand years. The castle has many important family relics, the most important of which are the "Fairy Flag" and the "Dunvegan Cup". The Dunvegan Fairy Banner is the most precious and precious possession of the family. The fabric was once dyed yellow and was silk from the Middle East (Syria or Rhodes). Experts have confirmed that its date is between the 4th and 7th century AD. Mrs. Flora Louisa Cecilia McLeod, the twenty-eighth patriarch of the McLeod family, was born on February 3, 1878 and died on November 4, 1976. She opened the castle for public viewing. Now, the patriarch of this family has been passed down to the thirtieth generation. The family members are all over the world.
