Where you'll be

Doune is one of the best preserved medieval castles in Scotland.
The Great Hall is 20 metres by 8 metres , and 12 metres high to its timber roof, again a 19th-century replacement. The Great Hall and the courtyard feature in the Game of Thrones filming . The hall has no fireplace, and was presumably heated by a central fire, and ventilated by means of a louvre like the one in the modern roof.

David was very kind and answered all of my questions. However I was expecting a “unique private tour” about Game of Thrones in the castle and he just dropped me off. I also had to pay for a ticket to go inside. After paying 240$ for this experience I feel a little ripped off and feel as though this needs to be advertised as a taxi service rather than a private tour. However, David was very kind and flexible for picking up and dropping off locations and I enjoyed our conversation to and from Doune Castle. However, little information about Game of Thrones was provided at all.
