It's always nice to go. They treat you like a citizen and you feel part of the municipal administration. Rafa, the municipal architect, is an involved public servant. A crack. The best.

It smells weird inside and I think I saw a rat, it was a rat or a small cat I don't know exactly. They should check the plumbing.

It had not been there for 2 years, renovated. Super friendly, efficient and excellent treatment, nothing to do with what we are used to in public administrations.

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.
