Doune Castle Things to Do: 1 reviews and 5 photos
Doune Castle was built in the 14th century on the foundations of a 13th century castle. It was built by Robert Stewart, the grandson of Robert the Bruce. Later, it passed to James Steward, Earl of Moray and half-brother of Mary Queen of Scots, and still belongs to the Moray family today.
Unfortunately, the castle was closed when we visited. What you can see in the pictures is mainly the impressive gatehouse, but this is only one part of the castle - there are more walls surrounding a courtyard. When the castle is open, you can visit all this, as well as the rooms located in the gatehouse, including the hall and the kitchen. If not, it is still interesting to see the interior and to wander around the grounds.
