Almost totally destroyed by Jacobites in 1716, it was rebuilt in 1742 with the building of Wades military road. The only landmark that survived intact was the Parish Church with its 11th Century tower. The village has nearly 100 listed buildings which include some of the finest examples of 18th century Scottish architecture.
The Highlandman's Green once used in the cattle droving days, and a resting place en route to the Falkirk Tryst. In southern corner is the Dog's Head Well worth a visit. Other passed residents include the 17th-century Doune gunmaker Thomas Cadell and Helen Gloag born in 1750. She eventually became an Empress of Morocco.
The village has a bowling green and a 9-hole golf course. Just up the road on the way to Crieff is Drummond Castle with its magnificent Italian-style garden.
