Despite the Covid restrictions, our visit was well organised, thanks to the very helpful guides. Doune Castle was more a family home than a defensive castle, which meant it remains relatively well-preserved. Guides were available to walk us through the rooms where filming took place for Monty Python's Holy Grail. Then we wandered through the rest of the building and ended up strolling through the woods beside the castle. A few hours well spent. Thank you Historic Scotland!

We visited Doune whilst travelling between two stops on a mini-break, and were not disappointed. The castle is so impressive as you come along the driveway. We had pre-booked and printed tickets all prepared and the Covid-19 safety measures in place were great. As we arrived at opening time it was lovely and quiet. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming, and extremely informative. Due to COVID there were no tours, but this did not dampen our experience. The rooms in this castle are staggering, the views are amazing, and the guide book was great to purchase before wandering around. The gift shop itself is really good. As others have said, geared towards the shows that have been filmed there, but still well worth the visit. I love castles, and this one is something else. I’d go back tomorrow if I could.

Really nice castle that is partly ruined, but very atmospheric. If you are a fan of Outlander you will want to visit here. Take a walk in the grounds down to the beautiful river, just take in the scenery and quiet, it’s lovely.
