Castles, Coos and Kirkyards (and squirrels)

Nessie is stitched up, tassel on! I found this cute little cross stitch kit while shopping in the old tartan-weaving-mill-turned-gift-shop that is on the Royal Mile below Edinburgh castle.

I promised in my last post to share some photos from my trip to Scotland.

Edinburgh Castle

I asked to see castles and we saw many! (there’s never too many castles though) Edinburgh Castle was my favorite.

Below the castle in Greyfriars Kirkyard, squirrels scampered up trees and across gravestones. This one appeared to be levitating!

I loved the quirky little building that was the Queen’s bathhouse.
We walked in many picturesque little villages – this one is Loch Lomond
We went on whiskey tasting tours: Edradour Distillery,Β Pitlochry
The Culross Palace Gardens were amazing, even in the fall. I’d love to go back when they are in full bloom.
I finally saw some wee Hieland Coos in person! They are so much cuter than Canadian cows πŸ˜‰
The Holyrood Abbey – awe inspiring.
I discovered that I was not at all fit when we hiked up to the Wallace Monument.
Fabulous views while I caught my breath! I loved every minute of my visit to Scotland, and can’t wait to go back.
