Doune Castle reviews
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... more »

I was pleasantly surprised that this castle was filmed in the outlander series! I was going to this castle to find out about the Monty python movie the holy grail. Those tidbits were funny and the history of the actual castle was quite interesting. I enjoyed this a lot but i did it in an hour but I didn't shop. Driving there can be a bit tight and parking is limited. When I went the castle was under construction so I couldn't get the full impact of the castle outside in the open fields which I would have loved but I still enjoyed my tour.
My wife and I enjoyed a quick stay here. We didn't have enough time for a proper tour, but would love to come back another time. We didn't even know it was Castle Winterfell , cool extra we enjoyed. The grounds are also beautiful, next to a river with green EVERYWHERE. Give yourself at least 2 hours here.
August 2019 castle has renovation work ongoing, this is fine. I was disappointed to feel shuffled out at 5 when the closing times states 5:30pm, gift shop shut just before 5pm, son was disappointed. Small free car park, but has helpful attendants. The audio guide is good, its a stretch to make it last 30 minutes, small Castle but a fun explore.
Fantastic. We'll worth a visit. Car park can fill up but the car park attendants do a great job. Really enjoyed exploring it as did the children.
Small but pretty. Entertaining audio guide too. Don't go expecting to be there for hours though. Definitely worth a short visit if passing
