During last weekend, me and boyfriend took a short trip to Stirling.

It is the smallest city in Scotland, and is very much seeped in history. Its most famous attraction is the Stirling Castle, which sits atop of Castle Hill. Several Scottish Kings and Queens have been crowned at Stirling, including Mary, Queen of Scots, in 1542. It was also one of the main focal points for Scottish Wars of Independence,the last one in 1746 during the Jacobite Invasion (a nod for Outlander fans). It was hard to pinpoint exactly when it was built, but it certainly dates back to earliest twelfth century.

We took quite a few photographs around, and the evening views were beautiful with the snow.


Here's another gorgeous evening view:


Surrounding the castle are the famous Douglas gardens,with its own myths and histories:



Also surrounding the main Castle buildings are some beautiful stony courtyards:


Lastly to add, there is a ghost present in the castle, who is said to be one of Queen Mary's servants in the form of a green lady. She has bern viewed quite a few times. And Mary herself is seen as a pink lady.
