Stirling Castle, Stirling Scotland

Day 7 of our road trip, cloudy
880km/1600km

P.M: Stirling Castle

We put up a night at Arrochar, Loch Long after Glencoe before moving south the next day to Stirling, Scotland. Loch Long itself was much calmer in terms of wind and tide at the loch which made more of my preference. Without much notice, we have spent half of the total kilometers in Day 7. Almost in all happy occasions, times flies  extraordinarily fast, do you agree?

We did not manage to visit the Tapestry due to time but we had a great time in all other stops in the castle.

“Royal stronghold, palace of pleasures or regimental garrison, what does Stirling Castle mean to you?” – Stirling Castle.
