As I'm sure you gathered from my TWM Scotland Edition, we drove into Stirling to do some of that tourist stuff that I hate so much but actually totally love on the Tuesday we spent in Scotland. We were battling with our umbrellas all damn day, so I didn't take as many photos and I'd have liked; what I'm really trying to say here is that I took a ton of photos but they're mostly awful so you'll just have to settle for these. Okay? Okay, great! Now, let's begin our tourist adventure at Stirling Castle.
After the hems of our pants were soaked with rain and we'd exhausted all there was to see in the cold corridors of the Castle, we decided to cross the city for a visit to Wallace Monument, which was constructed in 1869 to celebrate the thirteenth century hero, Mel Gibson. Friends, when I tell you it was SO WINDY at the base of the monument, I mean it with every atom of my cold, chapped body. A few spectacular gusts threatened to blow us clean off the top of the hill and the guard rail saved my life on more than one occasion. It was intense; it was lovely.
Now, my dear, there are many more Scotland pictures to look forward to. On Monday, you will get a gimps at the inside of Gargunnock House (it's cray) and on Tuesday you'll be treated to a little something special/ridiculous. Until then, be safe, be wise, and don't compromise- unless, of course, it's a really good compromise. xoxo
