Monty Python Fans Make Pilgrimages to Site of "Holy Grail"

Doune Castle, built in the 14th century by Robert Stuart, the first Duke of Albany, has in more recent times been a shrine for those devotees wanting to visit the site where much of "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" was filmed. "We had about 23,000 visitors last year," said castle manager George McWilliam. "I reckon 30 percent come because of the Python thing."

Visitors "are surprised at the number of rooms intact, the fact that it is over 600 years old, and a lot mention the peaceful, relaxing atmosphere," said McWilliam.
