Doune, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information about the central Scotland village of Doune, Perthshire.

Doune is a corruption of dun, the Galeic word for hill or fort. There is evidence of occupation here from the Bronze Age ( 1800 BC) through Roman times ( 1st century AD fort) and medieval to the modern-day.  Doune is perhaps best known for the famous castle which dates from the 14th century.
