Doune Castle
Doune Castle
The castle was said to have been built in medieval times but was destroyed before the end of the Scottish Wars of Independence after which Robert the Bruce was crowned at Scone as Robert I of Scots. The fortress however was rebuilt in the latter part of the 14th. century by Robert Stewart of Albany, the son of Robert II who was the first of the House of Stewart. Albany ascended the throne of Scotland upon his father's death in 1390, as Robert III.
The castle is now in the care of Historic Scotland.
