About Doune Castle

Built for the Regent Albany, Doune Castle is a magnificent late 14th century courtyard castle.

Its most striking feature is the 100ft high gatehouse which includes the splendid Lord's Hall with its musicians' gallery, double fireplace and carved oak screen.

Discover the new nature trail in the castle grounds or take an audio tour of the castle narrated by Monty Python's Terry Jones. Hear the exciting history of the medieval castle and residents, as well stories of the making of Monty Python and the Holy Grail which was filmed at the castle. Visitors can hear clips from the film and find out about the alternative history of Spamalot, elderberries, African swallows and wooden badgers.
