Doune Castle is one of the Outlander film locations near Thorntree Barn
Doune Village is well worth a visit in its own right. If you walk down from the centre of the village towards the medical centre, you will find Doune Castle. It’s well worth a walk, after your visit to the Castle, down to the River Teith, where there are some spectacular views. The River Teith is famed for it’s Salmon and Sea Trout fishing.
Doune Castle has been the film location for the recent Outlander series and also for the Monty Python films in the 1960s.
