Having seen from the highway, this small castle lost in the plain, we went out at the following ramp: we must look for it to find it, but it's worth it! it is magnificently preserved, although it can only be seen from the outside.

We were there, we talked to a gentleman from the farm, he took us to his house to give us water for the girl, he explained to us the dangers, if we jumped the fence, he told us that there were people who did not respect her, we understand, I comment that there are people who bother to warn of these dangers, who only do it to avoid risks, and that they are responsible if something happens, it is true that there are people who come from the city and believe they are entitled to everything, go to the country people as legs, and they have a big heart, it is their job and they have to be respected, they do it for our own safety, they also explained things about the palace, great people, let's respect them. A hug for them.

Very unpleasant and disappointed we stopped my wife and I with my dog ​​on the road to take some pictures and we were approached by a man in a car to invite us to leave since it is a private property which of course we knew since they have all the castle full of posters and we know how to read, we have never entered any enclosure and as far as I know the road is not private or you have forgotten to put the eighty signs along the way, since when can you get way to stop a moment, bravo for the hospitality of the people of the villages are charming most a shame to find characters so they leave a bad taste in your mouth after a nice morning walk in the countryside because my assessment is that it is a place where you do not seem better

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.
