Doune Castle

Address:
Castle Hill, Doune, The Wooded Western Edge
Description:

The grounds of this site are open and free to visit. The castle is currently closed. Historic Scotland are working hard to gradually reopen the places you love while making sure the experience is safe for everyone.

Marvel at the magnificence of Doune Castle, built as the home of Regent Albany, 'Scotland's uncrowned king.' His rich tastes can be seen clearly in the architecture of the medieval courtyard castle.

Today, you can walk in the footsteps of rulers both real and fictional. Doune is a popular filming location and has featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Games of Thrones and Outlander.

What to see and do:

  • Take an audio tour
  • Picture the cathedral-like great hall full of Albany's guests enjoying his 'belly cheer'
  • Step into the kitchen and servery to imagine how great banquets were prepared
  • Admire the views from the battlements over the River Teith and towards the Menteith Hills and Ben Lomond
  • Take our fun fact-finding quiz while exploring the castle
