Feb 16, 2006 - Stirling home of the revolution

We packed the car up and took off out of Edinburgh. Ben had given us a tip that Stirling was a good place to go for a day trip. Stirling is where the battlefield of Bannockburn is situated. There is also a giant monument to William Wallace, and of course, Stirling Castle. It was raining so there wasn't going to be much outside stuff being done today so we headed to Bannockburn where there is a small museum on Scotland's battle for independence at the beginning of the 14th century. It was quite interesting and elaborated a bit on what we had...

Sep 22, 2005 - Off to Sterling

Got up early and had to take my laundry over to the local laundrette, bought a bit of food for my trip, and came back to pack. I seem to have more stuff now than I did when I left, yet I haven't bought anything since I've been here. Took the city bus to the bus station and made my Sterling bus by 3 minutes. There wasn't even a dozen people on the bus and I got the back row of 5 seats to myself. I finally got some authentic Scottish weather as it started to rain just after we left and rained the whole way. The bus station is beside the mall...

Aug 10, 2005 - Stirling, Scotland

Aug 9 - 10 Our last stop in Scotland. Our first activity in the town was to visit the old jail. It was a great tour where they had the guide dressed in several different period costumes. We later went to visit Stirling Castle. This was a nice castle as it had both original and restored parts to it. We have to confess we have seen enough castles to last the rest of the trip or at least until London. We went to our last Scotish pub and had a wee dram and a pint. On our way out of town we stopped at the William Wallace Monument. Next we are...

May 18, 2005 - Stirling

Emily and I left the Paisley stake today. We decided to take our time going up to Edinburgh and stopped in Stirling. It was such a neat little city. We had a hard time deciding if we wanted to pay to go in the castle or not. We actually called my mom to ask for her opinion. We were used to everything being free like it was in London. We hadn't anticipated having to pay and we didn't want to pay for 10 castles if they were all going to be the same. My mom recommended seeing the inside of Stirling and just the outside of Edinburgh. The castle...

Apr 29, 2005 - Stirling, Scotland

As some of you may know, my great great great great great great....... great relative was William Braveheart Wallace, a hero of Scotland. The family was from Stirling, Scotland, so of course we went there. We took day trips and things from there, but the best part was the Wallace Monument. A tower that looks like it should be a villain's lair in a horror movie, but I guess it only looked like that because it was very stormy weather with big black clouds looming over the points of the turret-like top of the tower. We drove to the bottom of...

Mar 28, 2005 - A Stirling Little Adventure

For the past week and a half I have been trouncing around in Scotland. I haven't up to this point written much about it except in passing, but it is indeed a lovely little slice of land. Edinburgh it's capital is amongst the most inviting large cities I have been to and Glasgow (the second largest city in the UK) although it has parts of it that look a little bit like East St. Louis (minus Nelly and the St. Lunatics of course) has some redeeming qualities as well (i.e.- a plethora of magnificent & FREE museums). Perhaps one of my favorite...

Mar 14, 2005 - London then on to Tillicoultry

So leg one of our world travel adventures ended with a bit of a bang. On March 3 we were supposed to catch an 11:45 pm flight over to London where we were going to spend a few days with a friend as an interlude before we began trying to settle ourselves in Scotland. But, after waiting 5 hours for the British Airway mechanics to replace a broken engine starter, our flight was cancelled - turned out the airline needed to fly the broken piece over to Thailand from England. To help us deal with the inconvenience of this delay, we were put up...

Dec 16, 2004 - Stirling Castle

After a while of same old same old in Edinburgh, going to classes and the like, we got visitors! Chris and Sam came at nearly the same time which fortunately forced dad and I out of our routines to do some more exploring. One day we hopped on a train to Stirling to explore the castle there, the only castle in Scotland never taken by force. It was just as large and impressive as Edinburgh Castle and had a very good view of the surrounding area including of the Wallace Monument, another historical attraction of Stirling. There were lots of...
