For our second day in Scotland, we did the Loch Lomand and Stirling Castle tour from Rabbie’s Tours. Our first stop on the tour was Stirling Castle.
The is the castle that overlooks the battleground of the famous Battle of Stirling Bridge from Braveheart. Of course, reality was nothing like Braveheart, but that’s a story for another time.
Of all the castles we visited on our UK Holiday (and I think there were six total), this had the most picturesque views. Looking down from the castle was amazing from every direction.
The look back up at Stirling Castle wasn’t bad either, but I’d give the nod on that to Edinburgh Castle by just a hair.
They were also the most laid back about photography, allowing indoor photography from just about everywhere. In general, the Scots were much more relaxed about this than the English. What a surprise.
I’ll post more about Loch Lomand and the Highlands tour in general in the next day or so.
