Towel from Thistle Products.
I found it in Stirling, a shop near the railway station, sorry I can’t remember its name.

A nice day in Stirling

with one comment

I did not win the Stirling Castle photo competition, but: ” Gillian [the manager] also very much liked  Sven Wifstrand, of Sweden’s, cleverly taken photo of the outer defences through the battlements.”  Not bad for a tourist with a pocket-size camera, eh?

One more thing about Stirling

leave a comment »

I wish I could show some more, but my pics are not very many and not very good, since I had bought my little Olympus just before the Scotland trip. In Stirling I found the best shop of Scottish souvenirs, just opposite the railway station, better than in Glasgow or Edinburgh in my opinion.

A passage to the inner yard of the palace. I should think the drainpipes are not there when it opens again!

As no more royals stayed at the palace, it was worn out during centuries of military use. Still the researchers have found traces of original wall paint.
