... in a log cabin by the lake in what I hoped would be a small and solitary break in the hectic schedule of the trip so far. On the way, KB had said that visiting the Castle Doune was a must, so I stopped there in the small village to have lunch. Afterward I made my way to the castle and was mystified by a strange feeling of déjà vu when I got there.
