Oh, Scotland. Even on a rainy day, you’re just as beautiful.
I got extremely lucky and managed to snag a seat on a tour to the Highlands my last day in Edinburgh. With a delicious morning roll in one hand and a steaming cup of English Breakfast in the other, I climbed into the coach that was going to drive me through more of Scotland than I had seen in my entire week there.
Our last stop on the tour: Stirling Castle.
We were free to explore, weaving in and out of hallways that were built back in the 13th century by rich kings. We danced in the Great Hall used by Scotland’s Royal Court and walked underneath the dozens of colorfully sculpted Stirling Heads. Stirling Castle is truly a mystical place.
