Doune Castle

[Doune Castle]

This massive, 14th century castle is the main draw of the village of Doune, which occupies a spot where the main road from Stirling to Callander crosses the River Teith. Tourists flock here thanks to the castle's links with Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Game of Thrones and Outlander: sections of all 3 were filmed here, making Doune Castle one of the country's most visited. A worthwhile loop of riverside path links the castle indirectly with the attractive village centre via the Ardoch Burn and River Teith, shown on a 3-D map in the castle's exhibition room and also on our dedicated walk page.
