Welcome to Day 4 of our trip! We had planned on taking a Hairy Coo Tour on Monday, but our payment wouldn’t go through online and it was sold out the morning of. Even though we weren’t able to go, I would definitely recommend it to everyone because we got such good feedback about it, and the video looks really fun! One of the stops on the Hairy Coo is Stirling Castle, so we decided to take the train by ourselves, with Jackie and Will of course! We didnt get to see some of the other parts of the Hairy Coo tour, but we had a really fun time at the castle alone! The views from the castle were amazing, and were made even better by sunshine and blue skys!
I really like Stirling a lot because it reminded me of a small mountain town. Edinburgh is a large city, so Stirling felt quaint and cute in comparison.
A lot of stone houses that we saw while riding trains around (Glasgow, Stirling) had the prettiest cobalt blue doors. I decided that I would have one just like it one day.
This is the front entrance of the castle. The view from the highway and valley on the other side is much more impressive, but since we were on foot we weren’t able to get to that side.
Sunshine does not mean warm!
Jared’s picture of me is way better than mine of him…
If we look a little bulky, dont worry, we were wearing about 5 layers each on every body area.
The unicorn is one of Scotland’s National Symbols.
Time to head back to Edinburgh!
Next up is the Scottish Breakfast, Arthur’s Seat and more! Stay tuned…
