The interesting history and fine building of Alikartano. The cafe has pan history, good service, good coffee and an excellent tasty blueberry-raspberry pie.

Nice old manor houses in a green rural landscape along the river. The main building is worth seeing in its floor plan and the interior is tastefully furnished and renovated. The history of the manor is exploration tourism. There is no special investment in the yard and garden. The nature and history trail advertised online in the adjacent creek valley was revealed to be completely unmanaged. Shawl. It was not stated on the website that the main building can only be visited with guided tours held every hour. During the guided tour, a lot of information was gained about the history of the manor, but the guided tour was a bit crunchy and non-interactive. There is a café in the courtyard building. The setting is comfortable, but the price level for the pastries is high (e.g. a piece of berry pie 7 €).

Unfortunately the place was not accessible, but the cafe had really friendly staff and good food

An interesting and fun guided tour. In the summer of -21, the experience was taxed by the renovation of the lower main building, the old main building, which prevented access to the building, half of the courtyard was closed and the nature trail that circled the orders could not be circled. It should also be noted that the museum was not to be visited on its own, but with a guided tour (which I recommend was good). However, I did not notice this on the website. It is therefore advisable to schedule your arrival before the even hour, when the guided tours start in summer -21.

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.
