This has to be the biggest museum I’ve ever been to. Yes, as everyone already mention it has nine floors and each one is so interesting. We went around 12 in the morning and the ticket costed 8€ each since it was closing after 2 hours so I would say that was definitely worth it and we did manage to go through all the floors with a ticket half the price. Beautiful exhibition and definitely a must visit!

Lots to see and learn here - it’s a huge museum. Very interesting if you’re into learning more about the maritime industry and the extensive history behind it. Great gift shop as well. The building has been beautifully renovated and is a beautiful space to wander around.

Wonderful naval museum! Large with different themes such as History of navigation, merchant, military, rescue/security, weapons... with many models, videos, photos, replicas... very well organized in a nine-story building!

Amazing place from warship to cargo vessels. If your kids like ship, it is a “should visit” as they have a huge amount of ships model for your kids, they can tell you a lot of stories if they are really an expert. U-boot section is a MUST visit area for real gurus. Don’t miss the historic board which you can see the scale of the number of warships being built for WWII, you will be shocked by it.

Amazing museum with 9 floors. You can see a lot of exhibitions about navy and ships. A lot pf interesting ship models here and the last floor shows the collection of ship models which is so nice. The museum is bigger than I thought can take up to 4 hours to visit everything

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.
