It is located in a nice, quiet place, on a small hilltop, unfortunately it was closed, we couldn't go inside.

Advance telephone consultation is required, but the locals are very kind

We visited this gem while searching for our memories of the Árpád era. We were lost in front of the gate, when a nice gentleman came and let us into the church. The church is also beautiful from the inside, the original frescoes have been wonderfully preserved. Anyone interested in our past should definitely visit here.

Such an interesting little church! You can see the layers of its centuries of history preserved on the wall frescoes. A must see if you are in the area, even if medieval churches are not your interest. It has that sort of character that makes you feel like you’ve discovered something off the beaten path.

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.
