    Stirling Castle

    August 27, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Stirling Castle gehört zu den bedeutenderen Casteln rund um Edinburgh. Für uns als Besucher besticht es durch tolle Aufarbeitung. Die Küche ist schön dargestellt. Zwischendurch wird musiziert und die Wände und Decken wurden aufwendig restauriert.
    Dazu war es geradezu angenehm mit deutlich weniger Begleitern unterwegs zu sein.
    Maria Stuart Bezug - Check!

    Lunch (Stirling)

    After my first driving experience in the UK, we were happy to take a break for lunch before exploring Stirling Castle/Bannockburn.

    Unicorns everywhere!

    August 26, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 54 °F

    Sunday already! We left Oban for the drive along the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomand to Stirling. Stirling Castle, royal residence of Scottish kings and queens, including Mary Queen of Scots, was built to rival the sumptuous castles of France in the fifteenth century. The recreations of the 16th century Unicorn Tapestries, and the carved wooden Stirling Heads on the ceiling are amazing.Read more

    Historic Stirling

    July 5, 2012 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    It was moving day to Oban Bay, but we made a stop along the way in Stirling, which is known for, among other things, its historically important castle. Although we didn't tour the castle, it was certainly impressive to behold, despite the heavy fog. But what we most liked was walking the cobbled streets up to the castle. The walk included Stirling Old Town Jail (1847), which was also used as a military prison from 1888-1935, charming Scottish homes, and Argyll's Lodging. And of course we loved the views. Across the way, you can see the monument to Sir William Wallace (which US folks would know as "Braveheart"), who led the Scots in the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297.Read more

    Scottish Fare, Whisky, and Ale!

    July 4, 2012 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    We did our best to sample as much of the local cuisine as we could, and we did pretty well! We were able to enjoy everything, from North Sea and North Atlantic seafood to the traditional full Scottish breakfast, to more modern Scottish twists on Mediterranean.

    Fortunately, we were able to capture (with the handy Evernote Food app) some of these, which you can find by following this link <https://www.evernote.com/pub/dan_boisvert/scotland--pubsandrestaurants&gt;. (You should be able to view these without creating an Evernote account.)

    Unfortunately, we failed to capture two of our best dining experiences, one at Mithas, a fascinating fine-dining Indian restaurant we attended with the other participants and partners from the Hybrid Conference, another at The Reverie, a deliciously fun pub restaurant, also in Edinburgh. But click on the links, and you'll see some of the reasons our trip was so tasty!

    Kann mir sehr gut vorstellen, wie Mama mit leuchtenden Augen alles aufsaugt. Das war schon immer Mamas Traum. Bestimmt war Mama früher mal ein Burgfräulein 😘...

    Stirling 14.Tag

    June 22, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Heute ist leider schon der letzte richtige Tag... Wir verbrachten diesen noch in Stirling. Nach einem Rundgang mit einem Audio-Guide durchs Stirling Castle setzten wir uns noch in den Schlossgarten und tranken ein Cider. Danach ging es mit dem Auto zu unserer letzten Übernachtung vor dem Abflug nach Limekilns. Dort hatten wir ein riesen Zimmer. Vor dem Abendessen spazierten wir noch am Hafen entlan(Ebbe) Das Abendessen im Hotel war himmlisch!! Papi und ich gingen danach noch in ein Pub, weil wir gehört hatten, dass noch eine Band spielen soll... Dem war auch so... Es sassen 9Männer mit ihrer Gitarre um einen Tisch und spielten einen alten Hit am andern. Es war dort sehr gemütlich :)Read more
