We jumped up fairly early today and went back down the road to Callander in the hope of seeing a working woollen mill. No such luck, but we did get a nice rug (McKenzie tartan).
After our trip to Doune Castle (where Monty Python and the Holy Grail was filmed), we eventually found Inchmahome Abby, which could only be reached by a boat trip, which was fun.
Back into Stirling we went to McDonald's, in a desperate attempt to find fresh food (mmmmm Salad!!!)
Stirling Castle was next on the list. It was really great. We could have easily spent the whole day there. Too many people of course, , but what can you do?
Last on the list before driving back into Edinburgh was another brewery and the National Wallace Monument. This was a great view, but many many stairs and a really huge hill had to be climbed first!
The drive into Edinburgh was awful, I got us off the motorway one exit too early and ended up in traffic for about 30 min.
Eventually we made it to Jack’s unpacked the car and Jack took us into the festival. A pleasant evening and a few beers were had. I also bought a nice little bad that I didn’t need.
