Doune Castle

Doune Castle is my favorite. Built in the late 14th century, it has been restored (partially) to that early era. It’s been the shooting location for a number of my favorite movies. In Monty Python & the Holy Grail (1974), it was the castle of the French Knights, the castle of the wedding scene, and Castle Anthrax. It was used for Winterfell in Game of Thrones (2011) and Ivanhoe (1952). It is a wonderful Scottish castle to visit, south of Stirling. It is in great shape for a medieval castle, and they don’t seem to have thought about liability laws, as they let us roam all over it, including up on the roof. It was a real treat! The plans for the castle are below.
