  • The castle is currently closed for reconstruction work, but we visited the grounds anyway since we are fans of Outlander and Game of Thrones. I was sad that they didn't have the Winterfell sign still....  more

  • This is a must see for fans of Outlander, Game of Thrones, or Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Although it is not intact, it is being restored to some extent ands you will be able to go through it...

  • Love Doune Castle and I would recommend a visit. Good for a family walk and doggy friendly. I have visited over a number of years and have now been able to visit more often as I now live about 7 miles away.
  • Despite the castle being temporarily closed at the moment you are still able to walk around the grounds. Therefore you can take photographs etc but you can't go inside the castle. Loved it.
  • Great for fans of Monty Python. A very interesting castle with a great history. Current the audio guide is downloadable for your phone but mobile coverage is not very good so you may not get to hear any of it while there. There is a lot of audio as well so you might find yourself in some rooms longer if you listen to the historical, Monty Python, and Outlander guides.
  • Loved it. What an amazing place. So much history and very friendly staff. Audio guide is really good. Just Download the audio guide in the car park as WiFi is very slow once in Castle. Take you headphones.
  • A lot of the castle wasn't available to be viewed and it wasn't made clear on the website. They charged us the same price and didn't offer the same amount. Audio guides were very good though
