Today we're traveling to Callander, the Trossachs and Loch Lomand. We've got a jam packed day full of castles, cathedrals and Rest and Be Thankful. The area itself is huge and there are a million different dirrections we could go in.
We're planning to visit Doune Castle of Monty Python and the Holy Grail fame. SP is very excited (as we all are) to visit this important site. :-) I'm very certain there will be many quotes from the movie as we tour the castle.
Next, we're hitting Dunblane Cathedral a church with it's beginnings dating back to 600 AD. For someone from a country less than 250 years old, that's just mindboggling.
Then we're heading over to Lochleven Castle the site of Mary Queen of Scots imprisonment. It was here that Mary was forced to abdicate her throne to her son James.
Next, we're planning to drive through the Trossachs National forest, by Loch Lomand and up to a place called Rest and Be Thankful. According to PC, it's a spot at the very top of a hill. Once there, you're supposed to rest, look at the vista around you, and be thankful that everything is downhill from here :-) Of course, we're driving up there instead of walking. I'm still planning to be suitably thankful (that I didn't have to walk).
Tell me what you're most thankful for. There will of course be prizes.
