Doune Castle

Doune Castle is an imposing medieval structure in the Stirling area of central Scotland, and was infact the set for the 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail' movie, filmed in 1975! Orignially thought to have been built by Robert Stewart, the Duke of Albany, in the late 14th century, recent evidence has come to light that shows it was infact built over 100 years earlier, in the 13th century. However, much of the 13th century construction was damaged or destroyed during the Scottish Wars of Independence, and most of the building that we see today is infact what was re-built by Robert Stewart.

Doune Castle saw a fair amount of war and military action during the 17th century, including the Wars of the Three Kingdoms from 1639-1651; Glencairn's rising just two years later in 1653, and not to mention the fierce Jacobite risings of 1745 and onwards. As a result, the castle was almost entirely ruined by 1800, and vast restoration work had to be carried out by the 1880's, which entailed replacing the timber rooves, internal wooden floors, and many interior fittings. One this work was complete, Doune Castle was passed into state care, and is now cared for and maintained by Historic Scotland.

Visitors to the castle can enjoy its 100ft high gatehouse, the Lord's Hall (which even has a musicians gallery), the castles nature trails, and a historical and comical audio tour narrated by Monty Pythons very own Terry Jones.
