          The hotel rooms are from the 1950's: linoleum and mouldy tiles with ancient plumbing in the bathroom, beige paint on tack board for the walls, peeling plaster and paint in the stairways, and advertised free wifi is only available sporadically in the lobby. The one elevator is tiny, and takes forever between floors.

          We spent the first night of our trip through Scotland here. It's very clean, the staff helpful and friendly and our room nice. It's an easy walk from the train station even with luggage.

          Climbing the steep medieval street to the castle, we found a pathway that followed the outside of the ancient town's wall. The views were over several battlefields between the Scots and British but today held Stirling houses and a golf course. At the top of the pathway, we entered the graveyard of Stirling's Church of the Holy Rude. (It was not …

We hit it off right away and rather than going to another museum we went to dinner and got to know each other. It was really heartening to talk to someone I had so much in common with and left me in a great mood.

          When I got back to my hostel I found they had upgraded me to the “Family Room.” Which meant I had an entire ...

          six others. Noticed there were only as
          many others at the castle so we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Still kind of early for tourist season plus the
          weather probably had some do something warmer.
          The tour was good and gained a lots of insight about the battles and
          life living here. There costumed

Treated ourselves to a pub dinner at "The Lion and The Unicorn," seated beside a roaring peat fire. We have found CLs - certified locations, mostly on farms, through the Caravan Club, where we can book ahead and know we have a spot for the night, with basic facilities, at reasonable ...

A wynd is an alleyway that is open at both ends, whilst a close is one that is only open at one end. As it was Friday night many persons were out and about in the streets and enjoying themselves at the local pubs.

          That evening we had pizza and salad at the apartment.
