Pros: parking for free, English speaking staff, cheap, wc available, small shop, 1 big hall with old cars and 1 smaller room with car-toys, interesting for kids especially for boys... Cons: a little bit cold inside, only a few vehicle brands, no English notes

Great shed of vintage and soon to be vintage vehicles to see and explore. To be fair it was a more diverse mix of vehicles than I expected with not just European cars but also many American cars. Bit pricey admission fee considering it is not that large. Also it is literally just an area for you to walk through with no special exhibits or anything.

An amazing place for car enthusiasts. In a side room you can explore models, toys and professional vehicle models. In the main hall, there are already concrete vehicles. For me, the coolest vehicle was the Citroen 2CV, the same vehicle used by the nun in "The Troops of St. Tropez". Tropez" (and the other parts of the gendarme) :-). If you find a moment, it's worth a visit here.

Really good visit, greeted by a lovely lady at reception. A fare price and a large collect of model and full size cars.

Interesting collection of mainly French vehicles, ranging from pre-war to early 90s. It was a hot day and being in what is essentially a warehouse building, was quite warm inside (too much for my better half). Would be good if there were English translations for the descriptions, but overall interesting and quirky, worth €10 entry if you're a car fan.

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.
