Another visit to Castle Leoch

On hot summer day I went for a return visit to Castle Leoch aka Castle Doune. I had heard that there is now an Outlander part to the audio tour voiced by Sam Heughan. The main audio is done by Terry Jones of Monty Python as the castle was used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

The first place there is an Outlander audio is the courtyard. Sam explains how this part of the castle was used in filming.

The next Outlander audio treat is the castle kitchen. The show was not filmed in the castle but the layout of the kitchen influenced the set design.

The last place there is an Outlander audio treat is on the second floor of the gate house tower. It describes where the shinty match took place and other views.

Before I left Doune Castle I went for a walk round the outside.

    • It depends how much of the castle you want to see as to how long you stay. Sam’s audio is only in a few rooms but there is audio for every room plus this castle was used in Monty Python and the Holy Grail so there is audio by Eric Idle as well. If it is a lovely day there are walks around the castle by the river.
