Next stop, Scotland part 3

St Andrews Castle, Scotland

St Rule’s Tower at St Andrews Cathedral
Built in the 11th century, 33m tall. Feels way taller & more harrowing when you’re inside climbing every one of those tiny death-defying circular stone steps.

There’s always someone in costume at a castle.

I like that they encourage you to touch this particular display. We don’t usually get the chance to touch any exhibition pieces, and I’m a tactile person.

Exhibition about the Nine Worthies, Stirling Castle, Scotland
I typically don’t go for exhibitions, but this was incredibly fascinating. My favourite exhibition of all the castles

In order to get to Doune Castle you had to follow a path, pass through three gates, and go through the woods.

New Lanark
UNESCO World Heritage site. Visitors won’t find a rural village countryside here; instead, the buildings & design reflect the onset of the Industrial Revolution.
