Dornie

Dornie (Scottish-Gaelic An Dòrnaidh) is a small village in the Kintail area in the Northwest Highlands of the former county Ross-shire in Scotland with about 360 inhabitants (2006 rating). In the past, the inhabitants lived mainly from fishing. Geographically, the location is near the confluence of Loch Duich, Loch Alsh and Loch Long. The well-known Eilean Donan Castle is located on a barrier island within sight of the village. The village itself runs mainly along the waters and consists of a variety of village houses, a small shop and a hotel. The main road A87 to the Hebridean Skye leads directly past Dornie. Before the bridge construction, the road passed through the center of the village and the traffic was handled by a ferry service over the Loch Long. Under bagpipers, the tune of the Dornie Ferry is a well-known Strathspey.
