Highlands: Doune Castle (That's Right The Monty Python Castle!)

This is the last post in my Highland series (I know sad day =( The very first place we stopped at on our tour was at Doune Castle. It is the castle that a great part of the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail was filmed at (I'm a big fan so I was very excited).

This was our coach. Notice where the door is on it. Because we use the buses around here so much you would think that we would have been used to going to the right side to get in but when there is no curb to give you some direction then you just go with instincts which means that we all went to the left to get on. After a while we got the hang of it.
It is very medieval.

That is Ben (L) and Steven (R) pretending to be snotty French Frogs. "Your mother was a hamster and your father smells of elderberries. Now go away before I taunt you a second time." =)

The tunnel that John Clese ran through to get to the person trapped away in the castle by their father.

This is where the wedding festivities were being held.

The stairs are all very narrow and wee and it is all leaky so there is water all over the place.

The great hall.

The fireplace is huge.

Looking down into the great hall.

And wee narrow halls.

The glass is really cool when it looks like this. The reason it looks warped is because glass is still in a weird sense a liquid and is settling.
