A couple from America enjoyed their recent trip to Scotland's Eilean Donan Castle so much, that they decided to replicate it using gingerbread.

Adam Shick, 26, and fiancee Anne Donald Albin, 27, had such fond memories of their time visiting Scotland in October that on returning to their home in Oregon they decided to make their own gingerbread version of one of their favourite Scottish castles.

Posting the results on social media site Reddit, Adam said the model took three weeks to design and build, includes stain glass candy windows and even has its own lights.

Adam explained that their decision to use gingerbread was simply down to the time of year, he said: “We started right before Christmas; we also made a gingerbread ‘mansion’ last year which really brought our skills together as individuals and as a couple, as well as being fun.

“We chose Eilean Donan Castle because it was one of our favorite castles and tours we went on in Scotland; being able to go into so many nooks and crannies as well as see all the pieces of history within the castle was truly magical, as is the location.”
