Doune Castle

Doune Castle is a magnificent late 14th-century courtyard castle. Its most striking feature is the keep-gatehouse which includes the splendid Duke’s Hall with a musicians’ gallery, double fireplace and carved oak screen.

The castle was used as several locations in the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a fact celebrated in the excellent audio guide tour narrated by Terry Jones.
