From a fan who’s family had a photo of Doune Castle as crew were preparing it, it also seems that there are further details: his family saw a dead pig and dead deer props, as well as furniture, being moved into the castle. This very strongly suggests to us that not only will the castle be used for its courtyard, but that the castle’s Great Hall is going to be used for the Winterfell feast scene.
If one takes that as correct, then the Belfast sets seem to play a more limited role than originally believed. The crypts of Winterfell seem one obvious place where a built set would be needed, and Lord Eddard’s bedchambers and other such rooms.
