Beautiful place to stay for a few days. Clean rooms, quiet also if on the backside. Breakfast sober but good enough. Dinner no surprises.

Interesting concept, we were in the tower suite and it was a very large and clean room. The view was nice too. However for what you get, I feel it's too expensive. The breakfast was OK, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurt, fruits and muesli style cereal. The only cooked item was scrambled egg or a boiled egg. We also ate at the restaurant and the food was tasty and cooked well, but again nothing special. I could have gone to a local small restaurant and had similar for a cheaper price. All in all, it's nice but not something I would say is a must see.

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.
