Doune castle, part 2 (Monty Python's castle) [03:03]
Due to the status of its builder, Doune reflected current ideas of what a royal castle building should be. It was planned as a courtyard with ranges of buildings on each side, although only the northern and north-western buildings were completed. These comprise a large tower house over the entrance, containing the rooms of the Lord and his family, and a seperate tower containing the kitchen and guest rooms. The two are linked by the great hall. The stonework is almost all from the late 14th century, with only minor repairs caried out in the 1580's. the restoration of the 1880's replaced the timber roofs and internal floors, as well as interior fittings. In 1607, the minister, John Munro of Tain, a dissenter against the religious plans of James V1, was imprisoned with a fellow minister at Doune, though he escaped with the contrivance of the then constable of the Castle, who was subsequently imprisioned for aiding the dissenters. The Royalist James Graham, 1st Marquess of Montrose occupied Doune Castle in 1645, during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms. In 1654, during Glencairn's rising against the occupation of Scotland by Oliver Cromwell, a skirmish took place at Doune between Royalists under Sir Mungo Murray, and Cromwellian troops under Major Tobias Bridge In 1974. some scenes from Monty Python and the Holy Grail were filmed at Doune Castle.

Doune castle, Part 1 (Monty Python's castle) [04:48]
The principal tower, or gatehouse, is rectangular in plan 18 metres(59ft) by 13 metres (43 ft) and almost 29 metres (95ft) high, with a projecting round tower on the north-east corner, beside the entrance. It complises the Lord's Hall, and three storeys of chambers above, located over the entrance passage. The vaulted, cobbled passage, 14 metres (46ft) long, was formerly defended by two sets of timber doors, and a yett, or hinged iron grille, remains. guardrooms on either side overlook the passage via gunloops, and also on the ground floor is a well, in the basement of the round tower. the site at the confluence of the Ardoch Burn and the River Teith had been fortified by the Romans in the 1st centuary AD, although no remains are visible above ground. Doune castle was used as a location in MGM's 1952 historical film Ivanhoe which featured Robert Taylor and Elizabeth Taylor. The british comedy film Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a parody of the legends of King Arthur by the Monty Python team, was filmed on location in Scotland in 1974. The film's producers had gained permission from the National Trust for Scotland to film scenes at several of their Scottish castles, as well as the permission of Lord Moray to film at Doune castle. However, the National Trust later withdrew their permission, leaving the producers with little time to find new locations. Instead, they decided to use different parts of Doune castle to depict the various fictional castles in the film, relying ...
