McManus Museum in Dundee

Dundee

This is the last post from my holiday in Scotland. I would have published it sooner, but I had other things to talk about as well. It’s a bit sad, because I loved looking through the pictures and remembering the places I’ve been to. I talked about V&A Dundee before, so check that blog post […]

Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle

Stirling Castle was on my list of places to visit for a long time. I wanted to make the most of our visit, so we’ve joined a guided tour. That was a fabulous idea, as we’ve learned a few things, while having fun. Our guide was hilarious, doing a bit of acting and impersonating, with […]

Doune Castle

Doune Castle

Doune Castle is a medieval stronghold, close to Stirling, central Scotland. Its name might not be recognized, but the interior of the castle is known by movie fans all over the world.

Fort William

Fort William

Fort William is a lovely town in the western Scottish Highlands, on the shores of Loch Linnhe, and the base for the ones wanting to climb Ben Nevis. On our day in Fort William, we’ve visited two tourist attractions, a museum and a castle, and we’ve done a bit of shopping. In the old part […]

Brodie Castle. Front view

Brodie Castle

I found out by chance of Brodie Castle. It was close to where we stayed in the north-east of Scotland, so we’ve decided to visit it quickly on the same day we left the east coast for the west coast. Brodie Castle was the ancestral home of the Brodie clan for over 400 years. Even […]
