Doune Castle Review
No self-respecting Highland chief's attire was complete without an ornate pair of pistols made in Doune, 5 miles west of Dunblane. Today the community is more widely known for having one of the best-preserved medieval castles in Scotland. It's also a place of pilgrimage for fans of Monty Python and Holy Grail, which was filmed here. Doune Castle is grim and high-walled, with a daunting central keep and echoing, drafty stairways up to the curtain-wall walk. The views make the climb well worthwhile. There is a good audio guide narrated by Monty Python's Terry Gilliam. The best place to photograph this squat, walled fort is from the bridge, a little way upstream.
