Doune Castle was open in March - but we were up early to start our trip to the Isle of Skye so we were there before it opened. On the 'should we get back one day' list this is a place I would add to see inside if it were open. Outlander was filmed here - and two things I have not seen - Game of Thrones and Monty Python.
The Tower is the oldest part of the church and was built in the 1100's,
Parts of the church were built in the 1100's, 1200's, 1300's and then restored in the late 1800's. On both the inside and out you can see sections and evidence of the different time periods.
The church roof was destroyed (part of the reformation, I think). And the inside was subjected to the weather for over 300 years.
There are carvings all over the church. Each pew has an an animal carved on the end. Each animal is to remind you of a Christian virtue. The pews also have flowers carved in them and no two flowers are repeated on any of them.
