Doune Castle (HS)

A magnificent late 14th century courtyard castle. Within the striking gatehouse is the splendid Lord's Hall.

This near-complete castle set amid lovely Stirlingshire countryside was built as the home of Regent Albany, Scotland's 'uncrowned king'. It was later a royal residence, a dower house for widowed queens and a Jacobite prison. It was partially restored in the 1880s. The great hall and kitchen tower are particularly impressive.The audio guide is narrated by Terry Jones, and recalls the filming of Monty Python and the Holy Grail here. The site has also been used as a film location for Game of Thrones and Outlander.
