August 13th: 2022: Down at Doune

Doune is one of those Scottish towns that I have driven through numerous times, but never visited – so when I recently went on this walk with another Walking Group, it proved to be a bit an ‘eye-opener’!

At this stage the plan is to start the walk close to the site of the former Doune Railway Station. We will head past the nearby Doune Ponds then meander through some lovely woodland. In due course we pick up a section of the former ‘Callander & Oban Railway’ for a couple of miles. After walking through the eastern side of the town, we pass through the grounds of Doune Castle before picking up a path along the River Teith. The final couple of miles include some more woodland and open countryside.
