Castle Leoch (Doune Castle)

Today’s day trip was to Castle Leoch aka Doune Castle. I had  been here before a few years ago due to the castle’s connection with Monty Python – Monthy Python and the Holy Grail was filmed here in the late 1970s.

Unlike other Historic Scotland properties there are not many information boards so it is worth using the audio tour narrated by Terry Jones.

Doune Castle features in several episodes of Outlander. It was interesting to walk around the castle imagining where scenes were filmed.

I then went for a walk down by the river – no sign of Jamie.
