... I parted ways with Brad and Jodie who were going to explore Camera Obscura & World of Illusions so I headed back to the apartment for some R and R. From the accounts of Jodie and Brad, the place was quite interesting and they both came back with some essential trinkets from the gift shop. Brad had purchased a selfie stick (which we all purchased after a couple of days- yes, I know, it's sad). Jodie was extremely excited to have purchased a "projector" box which was ...

... to reach the top with a great 180 degrees view of Stirling and surroundings. The rain came back to accompany us today though.

In the middle of a busy modern area was this towering monument of intricate arches, pillars and windows, all leading up to a point 200 feet above us. We went in this mystery spot and started the climb. At around 150 steps or so there was the first platform, a ...

... a few stone cottages, sheep, the Glenlivet Distillery.....

Best of all we were able to visit Balmoral Castle. I didn't even know if was open to the public, last time I was up here with Ma, it was hidden in the trees, now it is a huge tourist attraction. It's easy to see why the Royal family would love it's seclusion and beauty. The Queen was on the estate, up in the hills somewhere. Only the ballroom was open to the public, but ...
