  5. Eilean Righ (King’s Island), in Loch Craignish, Scotland

  6. The island is Eilean Rìgh in Scotland.

    There are a few specialities about this island. It has the remains of two Iron Age forts. It has a Buddhist temple which was built by Sir Reginald Johnston who was civil servant of Puyi, the last Chinese emperor.
