Deceptively large, the Red Lion Inn sports a number of rooms that have been recently renovated to a very good standard. The beds and rooms were comfortable and clean, as was the modern en suite shower room. There was a particular quirk that made the RLI even more endearing: our room had a fairly low ceiling and I was highly amused to see my 6'7" room partner stoop around like Igor! I think he did the hands and everything.
Downstairs there is a pub frequented largely by friendly locals willing to pass on info about the surrounding area. The bar has a good selection of whiskys and all prices are very reasonable. The food available in the restaurant is of a high standard, the full scottish breakfast was particularly appreciated after a night in the bar. The chef aims higher than ordinary pub grub, the duck breast I had for dinner was excellent.
All in all, Ive been to the Red Lion Inn three times now and I am looking forward to the next trip to Doune! I would recommend to everyone.
