Waltons Come to Visit - Day 1 - Stirling Castle and Pitlochry

Great first day with Chris and Angela. We took a drive south and stopped at The Horn just outside of Perth for a GIANT bacon roll. Delicious.

We also saw Stirling Castle, which was AMAZING. I highly recommend you visit. You can park in the city and walk up to the castle or you can drive to the castle car park at the top, which costs £4. We parked at the top. Unless you really like history, I wouldn't bother with the audio guides. There are plenty of information posters and staff (dressed up!) standing around to give you more information.


Doune Castle - Where they filmed Monty Python and the Holy Grail, parts of Game of Thrones, and are currently filming the Outlander series there.

They were mad that the castle was closed for filming.

We drove to Pitlochry later only to discover that Edradour was closed and Bells had it's last tour 30 minutes prior to our arrival. "Guess we'll go to a pub until dinner."

Good times. Silly times.


  1. Glad the weather is cooperating! Have fun on your whirlwind week!

  2. Bacon Rolls at The Horn are the best!
