{SCOTLAND} DAY TOUR MAY’16: Stirling Castle & Loch Lomond (Part 1)

Stirling Castle is my first stop to visit in this local tour booked via Viator. Just a brief introduction what this castle amazed me that was built in the 15th and 16th centuries and some buildings remained from the 14th century. Its strong defensive position surrounded by 3 sides of steep cliffs make the strong impression.

DRIVER / GUIDE FROM RABBIES

My driver and guide of the day. He was able to tell you all the scottish-related history from the moment we board the bus until we alighted the bus. Of course, it is their job to know but he is brilliant.IMGL5014.jpg

Before we entered, we had to buy ticket first as this tour was not included and was not free to public too.IMGL5016.jpg16-05-01-10-39-49-636_photo.jpg
