... just off the road. Followed swiftly bu the Wallace monument, on top of a craggy hill.
I later heard from one of our group, that he got a cab in Stirling on his first day and was not sure what the monument was, so he asked his cab driver, a self-described local of 45 years - who said he had no idea what it was. Despite living in Stirling his entire life it had never occured to him to wonder that this Gothic Victorian tower might be for. Odd enough ...

... I don't think it's my fault. The driver says he be there at 1 pm. She & I go out to watch for the taxi, he calls saying he's hit traffic, it will be another half hour. She says we're leaving at 2pm. He arrives at 1:30 exactly; I pay him 70 pounds, which is approximately $105 dollars, but I have my suitcase back! It was on a Sunday so they couldn't do next day federal express.
We get on ...
