The long awaited trip to Stirling. I told some of you that I gave Josh a trip to Stirling for Christmas. Well, he cashed in on his gift last weekend and we took the train out.
Stirling Castle is much like Edinburgh Castle in that it is on a high volcanic rock. It also has a rich history. Many kings had been crowned in Stirling Castle. This is where James VI (son of Mary Queen of Scots) lived during her reign. You can find more history here: http://www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk/stirling/stirlingcastle/
We also went out to eat! A very welcomed treat for us. We found a cozy lodgy sort of restaurant called Papa Joes and had great paninis for lunch.
