Nice park, ideal place for the barbecue with games for children.

The manor cannot be visited, but its setting, the Kéroual wood, is a very beautiful place to walk, with play facilities for children, its ponds with ducks, moorhens, sometimes herons and cormorants. Orientation-style courses are also possible. The mansion itself is known to be the birthplace of Countess Louise de Kéroual, who became a favorite of England's King Charles II, by whom she had a son who is one of Lady Diana's ancestors.

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.
