The church is beautiful, but the setting for the mass is a disaster, Mr. organist!!! This is impossible to listen to, have you heard yourself????

It's impossible to listen to this organist's screeching - your ears literally bleed. It's strange that the parish priest doesn't hear this and doesn't ask one of the parishioners (e.g. from the choir) for help with singing...

We weren't allowed to see the interior because the church was closed at high noon. From the outside it looks dignified and impressive

Ładny zadbany kościół. Dobre nagłośnienie, Ciekawe kazania.

The church dates back to the turn of the century, built in brick in the Gothic style. The equipment of the church comes from the Baroque period, although there are Gothic, Renaissance and Neo-Gothic elements. Over the centuries, the temple was destroyed by fire and robbed of the equipment by invaders and rebuilt. The church received its current shape in the nineteenth century.

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.
