Our Scottish Adventure

Hi Terri Reed here. This year my husband and I celebrated our thirtieth wedding anniversary. We decided to take a trip to Scotland and Ireland.
Today I'll share some of our pictures from Scotland.  Next time I post I'll share some from Ireland.

We spent four wonderful days in Edinburgh. I love this town and the country. I really hope to go back to explore more of Scotland.
The train to Stirling 
One of the highlights was the Royal Military Tattoo. Military bands from around the world performed.
There were so many stairs to take, hills to walk and sights to see.  Here's a few pictures for you to enjoy.

Edinburgh Castle

Prince Street Gardens-this is a monument to Sir Walter Scott
You can see Edinburgh Castle in the background at the top of the hill.
Loved all the bagpipers. 
Doorway to the chapel at Stirling Castle. I'm 5'7 and had to duck.

And just in time for Christmas...

    1. Thanks Mary. I will post them soon. It may be in a few posts as we spent ten days touring the southern part of the island.

  2. Terri, what fun! Thank you for sharing these pictures. I must confess, I'm not a big fan of bagpipes. But you have to admire the self-confidence of a man who is willing to dress up in a skirt (okay, a kilt) and marching around making that kind of noise.
    Scotland is so beautiful that I'm willing to put up with the bagpipes for the sake of the scenery :)

    1. I dragged my dear hubby to so many by the end he was groaning. But he’s glad to have seen the places and get a bit of the history.

  6. Awesome! My husband and I were in Scotland and Ireland in June. We had a great visit and wandered through the Castle and had dinner near the Robert the Bruce statue with the traditional haggis. Thanks for sharing :)
