On Tuesday we’ll choose one winner at random to receive an IndependentTraveler.com prize. Note: Although all are welcome to play, we can only ship prizes to the Continental U.S.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Sue, who correctly guessed that this week’s mystery location was Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland. Sue has won an IndependentTraveler.com logo item. Congratulations! Stay tuned for more chances to win.

    This is Eilean Donan Castle in Scotland. I believe it dates back to the 13th century. I know because I have been here! I went on a trip 10 years ago to Europe/UK and have a picture of myself in front of it! It has the most beautiful view from the top. Would love to see it again someday.
