A modest but modern museum. Friendly staff and modern exposition. Cool souvenirs. We were happy we went.

Naval museum building is full of army ship and different kind of pirate ship prototypes. Some of them has descriptions in English about what it is and for some of the pirate ships, it was in Polish. Outside building, they have kept quite lot of mighty tankers, missiles and Artilleries for display. You can just stroll around if you have nothing much planned for the day,

First of all, it’s more convenient to come to the museum during weekdays - you will face with less amount of people. However, the tickets on that weekend were free( surprisingly ), but there wasn’t any queues to entry to the museum, thankfully. The museum itself is very interactive and simple at the same time. The main exhibitions - inside and outside - contain the full-scale models of naval equipment: mines, missiles, guns and cannons etc. It has only 2 flours + additional flour with models of really old sail vessels. Mostly everything has English captions. Then, after inside part, you are welcome to enter the outside exhibition: several full-scale machines like plane, submarine, several tracks stand there and wait for visitors. Best place for kids, especially boys. Also, when I was visiting the museum, there were several old-fashioned cars in front of the museum - cool attraction definitely!

There are a lot of things but nothing stands out. Should be an interesting place for curious children though

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.
