Yesterday we’d planned to go for a walk as part of the 45-minute project. Carolyn spotted a lovely-looking walk just west of Stirling, around the North Third Reservoir.
When we got there, it was indeed lovely – but it was also very wet indeed!
Megan and the rest sensibly elected to stay in the car. In the ten seconds it took me to get this photo my jeans got soaked.
The rain radar showed there was no prospect of it letting up.
So instead we used our Historic Scotland membership and visited Stirling Castle. In the Great Hall at the moment is the Great Tapestry of Scotland.
This is quite some tapestry – 160 panels telling the history of Scotland from 450mya to present day, all stitched by local groups over the last four years. There were lots of beautiful details, and as a whole it told the story really well – I certainly learnt a few things!
