a morning visitor
we loved the old architecture
statue of King Robert the Bruce
William bringing my umbrella through the castle gate
exploring the gardens & museum areas
It was a special occasion...a celebration of the Queen's birthday...
...complete with gun salute and a cheer-->
the views were amazing, this one from Elphstone Tower
and this one looking down on the Nether Bailey
everyone enjoyed exploring all the nooks, crannies...
...and walking along the ancient walls
there were minstrels in the Great Hall...
...and a gargantuan fireplace!
funny boys havin' fun with a funny sign
my guys with Braveheart statue
Wallace statue on the monument
Stirling Castle from the deck of the Wallace Monument

on our way home...Welcome Break beauty
We stopped at Gretna Green on the way home...it's the first/last town in Scotland along our route...and has a history of lovers running there to get married.
<--the wedding anvil
my heart was not happy to be leaving Scotland....but the poppies along the route put a smile back on my face : )
