A more than special place. Magical, incredible and people with an unforgettable welcome. Thanks also to Mr. Gabriele.

Very beautiful country

Nice story, after half an hour looking for the road that is marked only on the provincial road at the bottom of the valley and is no longer signposted in the village, we arrive here to find that it is closed without any indication with a really nice private property sign

Castle in a beautiful panoramic position but closed, but I liked the very characteristic Castel Madruzzo village with particular corners and decorated with flowers.

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.
