Hi, I was wondering if decedents of the Macrae's can still stay in the Eilean Donan Castle

No, you can not stay there but you can visit. I just went there in June 2007. The tickets for the tour are inexpensive. I think they were like 6 or 8 pounds which is 12 to 16 dollars.
There are some neat places to stay in the town of Dornie. We stayed at the Rock House B & B run by Jan Moulding.
Watch out for the midges! There are some tiny biting gnat/mosquito type bugs that swarm all over you near the castle!

I read on one of the articles on the left, that if you paid £10 to join the clan, you'd be able to stay in the castle at a reduced rate. So this definately NOT the case, and you pay for a ticket like everyone else, just to walk around? (Humph).
