The arms were granted on July 3, 1974.

Doune was erected into a Burgh of Barony in favour of James Stewart, 3rd Earl of Moray in 1611, but may have been a burgh in 1434-35. The arms are appropriately based on those of Stewart with a Moray red cushion added in base. In chief are the main features on the device on the Burgh seal: the Mercat Cross of the Burgh, with a pair of crossed pistols on either side to recall the celebrated Doune pistolmakers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
