Doune Castle is located in scenic central Scotland. It was used in many of the scenes that take place in the city of Winterfell, and the thick stone walls and courtyard areas will be quickly recognized by fans of "Game of Thrones." However, this is not the first time Doune has appeared onscreen. It was featured in the 1952 film version of "Ivanhoe" and used extensively in the cult classic "Monty Python and the Holy Grail." (In fact, an annual Monty Python Day has been held at Doune since 2004).
The castle is open to the public, but there's there is a £5.50 entry fee (that's about $9).
