Doune occupies a spot where the main road from Stirling to Callander crosses the River Teith, near its confluence with the Ardoch Burn. The massive 14th century castle is the main tourist draw, partly due to its links with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Game of Thrones and Outlander - sections of all three were filmed here. A worthwhile loop of riverside path links the castle indirectly with the village centre via the Ardoch Burn and the River Teith, shown on a 3-D map in the castle's exhibition room - we recommend Doune the Deli for lunch.
