Also known as Doune Castle, near Stirling, it was built as the home of Regent Albany, "Scotland’s uncrowned king" and his rich tastes can be clearly seen from the architecture of this medieval castle. It is a popular location for filming, featured in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Game of Thrones and, of course, Outlander. If you want to take a tour of the castle, actor and director Terry Jones narrates an audio tour that reveals the castle’s exciting history and tales from the set of the Holy Grail.

Glen Nevis from Braveheart

One of Scotland’s iconic glens, watched over by the highest peak in the British Isles, Ben Nevis. Glen Nevis, near Fort William, was used in Braveheart for the mountainous landscapes. There are plenty of walks to enjoy in the glen, many of which start from the Braveheart car park – created as a parking spot for the film vehicles. The Glen is also part of the final section of the West Highland Way. To get there from Fort William, head along Glen Nevis road for almost a mile where the Braveheart car park is on the right-hand side of the road.
