The last day on the tour we spent first at Stirling Castle and then later at Glasgow.
Stirling is famous mostly for William Wallace and the huge battle he won there, the Battle of Stirling Bridge, which doesn’t exist any more. I spent most of the time we had in Stirling at the Castle which was amazing, I highly recommend a visit. The whole experience is completely different to Edinburgh, Stirling Castle is set up so that you can see what it would have looked like when Mary Queen of Scots lived there which is very cool.
One of the AMAZING views
The William Wallace Memorial as seen from Stirling Castle
I really Enjoyed Stirling Castle, it was phenomenal. Stirling is also the place where according to legend Mary Queen of Scots had her Husband Lord Darnley blown up. I had a hot chocolate it the building where it apparently happened.
Next and last stop on the tour was Glasgow. We where there for the evening and we went to ‘Jamie’s Italian’ for dinner. YAY Jamie Oliver. I love Jamie Oliver I have 6 or 7 of his cookbooks and I have been watching his television shows since I was a teenager so I was very excited.The Meal was amazing so so so good. I would eat at any of hie restaurants again in a heart beat.
Me totally daggy I know
That was my meal probably the best meal ever and our waiter whose name I can’t remember for the life of me was wonderful as well. The whole experience was just amazing.
Well that is the end of all the photos from my tour, it was wonderful I am so happy that I booked it and traveled it has been one of the best experiences of my life.
Next week i’ll be putting up mu photos from Oxford which has so far been equally as wonderful.
See you then
The Scottish Highlands were fantastic absolutely amazing. They were also extremely wet and windy. It was fantastic to really experience traditional Scottish weather. The down side is there are a whole stack of photos because I didn’t want to ruin the camera.
Eilean Donan Castle. (this is Castle from the movie ‘Maid of Honor’)
Back with some more of the trip tomorrow.
St Andrew is a small town, mostly famous for the golf course, which I didn’t go see at all, Golf has never really been my thing as we were only in St Andrews for an hour an a half.
I visited the ruins of the Cathedral and the Castle and that was about it.
St Andrews Castle

Later in the day we went to Loch Ness to visit Nessie. Who stayed hidden the whole time. But the lake was beautiful.
A sweet little Boat that chugged past while we were cruising
A Castle right on to the Loch
Loch Ness was really really beautiful the whole of Scotland actually is just stunning.
We had a whole free day in Edinburgh which was phenomenal, Edinburgh is a great city to wander around and explore in.
I spent most of the morning exploring Edinburgh Castle and the bulk of the afternoon shopping.
SO there are lots of pictures from the morning and not that many from the afternoon as my hand were full of lovely shopping bags.
The Castle is absolutely amazing, it has the most phenomenal views of the city, there is also a museum all about Scotland during the wars which was very interesting, just being in the Castle it’s self was fantastic.
The View as we waited to be let in

This was the chapel I think

Walking back into the City
(this is my favorite photo so far)
That was Edinburgh, I highly recommend the Castle is is an amazing visit. The rest of my day was spent shopping so I didn’t really take that many pictures but I do have one I want to share.
Men really do just wander around in Kilts, YAY!
So my last post was all about me photographing the War Memorial, all the shots were on my Nikon and I was spending a lot of time composting and trying to ‘see’ the picture I wanted before I took it.
Today is about Canberra there’s a couple of shots at the War Memorial but only a couple most of today’s photos are quick snaps as we were running around having fun. All from my iPhone’s point of view which is tons of fun.
I hope you enjoy it.
Lake Burley Griffin and the Sail Boats
More Autumn Leaves (I know I’m Obsessed at the minute)
The roof just outside the entrance to the National Portrait Gallery – Love It
The War Memorial, I really love this building
My Lunch – The restaurant at the War Memorial really was amazing fresh battered Flathead, yummy crispy chips great fresh salad I could eat it every day it was so good
The Concrete beams outside the War Memorial Restaurant
Some of the Grounds around the War Memorial
My Toms, not really important but I wore them while we were running around and I Love them.
That’s it have a great day everyone !
These are the Three Sisters at Katoomba NSW, Australia.
I took this photo not at the main viewing platform but one of the smaller view points, its often packed at the main platform and setting up a tripod can be difficult but the smaller platforms (there are tons of them) are so quiet you can really take your time and set up the shot you want. This is one the first shots I’ve ever taken on full manual mode, I spent ages fiddling with all the settings getting it as right as I could.
Makes me think about investing in some ND Grad filters.
