Weston’s stay at home

This year for a variety of reasons we have decided to stay at home for our holiday, but that does not mean we are not going to do anything. We are going to be tourists in our own country. The Edinburgh Festival Fringe starts next week so we already have tickets booked for several shows and hope to hit more as time goes on.

So day 1 we decided to get out of Edinburgh and visit Doune Castle near Stirling. As well as being famous historically it was where Monty Python filmed The Holy Grail.

After a quick lunch we decided to head over to The Wallace Monument. It’s a very steep climb up to the monument so I was glad we could sit down and listen to a performer talk about The Battle of Stirling Bridge. Having rested we were ready to tackle the 246 steps of the monument. Luckly has several levels that we could stop at to find out more about William Wallace and the monument. When we finally reached the top it was worth the climb the views were amazing. Going doing the steps and then the hill were alot easier.

I forgot my camera today so all today’s photos are taken with my phone.
