This archeological monument is run by two lovely women. The entrance is charged 3€ for adults and 1,5€ for kids. It's worth it, though. The landscape is beautiful and the view is as well. Nuraghe majori itself is an interesting building of Sardinian architecture. In the area are toilets and a little souvenir shop. They give you a paper guide in various languages (even in Czech). From the parking it's a 5 min walk.

Worth a visit if in the area. Allow 2hrs for the visit. Park your car at the car park by the main road and walk the remainder of the way up the single track road. Not expensive entry and the site is well kept and clean. Would definitely recommend.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
