Armadale Castle Armadale CastleArmadale Castle lies on the peninsula Sleat, on the island Skye. This gotic castle was build in 1815 for Lord MacDonald of Sleat. In 1855 it burned down. They are very busy making it a more attractive place for tourists. The castle was build against an existing building. Wedding pictures are being made behind the former entrance, now a small park.
