Doune, Deanston and the surrounding area is fantastic for the great outdoors, with something for everyone. A large variety of outdoor pursuits and indoor activities are on your doorstep or within easy reach.
The village is set south of the Grampian mountains, protected on the north by the Doune braes and sitting just outwith the bustle of the newly formed Loch Lomond national park. A short trip in each direction will take you north to Crief, east to the Ochils, south to the Campsie Fells and west to the breathtaking Trossachs and its numerous Lochs including Loch Venachar and Lake Katrine.
Within the villages and hinterlands there are plenty of good walks and also opportunities for cycling and horse riding as well as beautiful locations for lazy picnics by the River Teith and wild flower meadows in the shadow of Doune Castle.
For visitors and residents there’s a range of activities to cater for all tastes from bird watching at the Argaty Red Kite Centre, nature trails at the Doune Ponds, to sports including cycling, bowls, cricket, curling, football, as well as numerous community groups running everything from bridge evenings to bookworms.
For those who like life in the fast lane (either in a car or bicycle) see dounehillclimb for motorsport events. There’s also a range of Classic Road Tours taking in the best sights and scenery that central Scotland has to offer. For the motor enthusiasts there’s also the world famous Doune Hill Race in April.
Younger members of the community can start at the toddler group and then be set free to roam in the wide open spaces Doune has to offer before going to the local youth club which runs a range of activities to keep them occupied and entertained.
