Winterfell (Doune Castle)

Fans of Games of Thrones will recognise Winterfell if they make a trip to Doune Castle.

It's a pretty famous castle as it's also featured in Outlander as Castle Leoch and in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

Has anyone been? I think I'd need to bring my coconut shells and recreate that scene from Monty Python if I were to visit :smile:

    I've been :). They have coconuts you can borrow and an audio of Monty Python and the Holy Grail that you can listen to as you explore. I think they might have Outlander now too. Beautiful castle, I loved the feel of it :).

    Haha - that's brilliant!  Definitely going on my bucket list now.  Maybe a good one to take my Dad too for Fathers Day which is fast approaching :)

    Epic @ewan . Getting into astrophotography is on my to do list. I had no idea this castle had a Game of Thrones connection!

    Loved the narrow staircases and such when I was there. 
    Awaiting arrival of witty signature.

    We visited on a roasting hot day and really enjoyed a walk along the River Teith behind the castle to cool off.  We didn't borrow any coconuts but we did still clip, clop!
