The name Eilean Donan is Gaelic for Island of Donan, St. Donan was an Irish settler of legend in the sixth century, a missionary from the Inner Hebrides island of Iona. The castle sits on an island between three lochs; Loch Long, Loch Alsh and Loch Duich. It stands on the remains of a Pictish Fort. Historically, the castle has had a rather chequered past.

Eilean Donan is said to have its own ghosts. One story is that a Spanish soldier was killed in the battle when the castle was destroyed in 1719. He is said to have been seen carrying his head under his arm in the room which now holds the introductory exhibition. The other ghost is reported to be a certain Lady Mary who haunts one of the bedrooms.
