Kilmadock Parish covers the communities of Doune &

                                                            Deanston.

These two communities linked by the Bridge over the River Teith have history...

                      ...but they also have a future!

Both Doune and Deanston are old, ancient and proud communities, with their distint personalities on either side of the river Teith, and it was on the banks of this river that an early Christian settlement was established, probably round about the time of St Columba in the 6th Century.

 

But even today the villages are gowing, with new homes and new residents being welcomed.

 

Deanston was renowned as a mill town, with a very large water wheel to power the cloth making industry, which was later replaced with it's own hydro electric generating station that still functions feedin into the National Grid. At one time Deanston's population was well over 1000, all housed in one street (Teith Road) which was built for the workers by the mill owners, who paid them in 'trough money' - which could only be spent in the shop which was also owned by the mill-owner !

The mill buildings were transformed and now house Deanston whisky distillery, which has its own cafe and visitor centre.

 

Deanston grew in the 1950s and 1980s when homes were built, and has recently enlarged once again with new houses and a large recreation field, which will be appreciated by all, especially the pupils of Deanston's own Primary School

Deanston new

DDoune village was once famous for its pistol-making industry, but is now more famous for being featured in films including Monty Python & the Holy Grail. (we hold a Monty Python Day annually !)

 

There are three Christian congregations in Doune. A Scottish Episcopal

congregation at St Modoc's church, a Roman Catholic chapel named after St Fillan and our Church of Scotland congregation. The latter used to occupy the church building with the clock tower at the centre of the village, but moved into more compact worship space nearly ten years ago at 43 Balkerach Street.

 

Doune has its own Primary school, football team, retail outlets, (including wedding dress shop, jeweller & ladies fashion outlet) Community centre, several hotels, heritage centre, Gala Day, youth organisations, bowling green and nature walks as well as the historic Castle. Motor enthusiasts will remember the Doune Hill-climb course and motor museum, which is now an antiques centre.
