Scope and Content Doune Castle, Stirling, from south-south-west This view from the south-south-west, taken in 1985, shows the south side of the curtain wall, with the kitchen tower in the left background, and the lord's keep-gatehouse to the right. Despite the windows in the south wall, no buildings were ever constructed on this side of the courtyard. The castle was for many years the property of the Earls of Moray. The main ranges were partly restored in 1883 to designs by Andrew Kerr. It was given into the care of the Secretary of State for Scotland in the late 1980s, since when a programme of consolidation has been carried out by Historic Scotland, who now open it to the public. Doune Castle was built after 1401 for Robert Stewart, 1st Duke of Albany. It is a courtyard castle, of a type made obsolete by the development of heavy artillery. The duke's accommodation was in the gate-tower, and to the west were a hall and a kitchen block. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
