Scotland to Sicily 2016

Today we’ve moved to Stonehaven where we’ve spent time looking on monumental Dunnottar castle. Had a lovely Scottish Haggis on lunch, which is a savoury pudding containing sheep’s pluck (heart, liver and lungs); minced with onion, oatmeal, suet, spices, and salt, mixed with stock, traditionally encased in the animal’s stomach though now often in an artificial casing instead. From there we continued to Stirling where is a monument of Sir William Wallace (Braveheart) who was a Scottish knight who became one of the main leaders during the Wars of Scottish Independence.

After this we went to Stirling castle which is one of the largest and most important Scottish architecture building.

Again it was a rainy day, which spoiled our plans to do camping at all. We cannot afford to be wet again next day. After nearly 2 hours looking for cheapest option we’ve spent night at Youth Hostel in centre (£63/night). It was hard decision, but need of dry clothes was stongest. We went to the town centre for pint of local beer and famous 14 oz Abeerden Angus Rump Steak. We had a problem to eat it all!
