Lottery bid could 'save' castle
John MacLeod of MacLeod, the 29th chief of his clan, is the owner of Dunvegan Castle and the Black Cuillin mountains on the Isle of Skye.
The dilapidated home could now be given the funding in return for Mr MacLeod giving the mountains up for community ownership.
The application is one of the largest bids ever submitted.
It is being fronted by Skye and Lochalsh Enterprise on behalf of a consortium, which includes the local authority.
The site has been owned by the MacLeod family for more than 800 years, although the castle is the result of a restoration by the 25th chief between 1840 and 1850.
