Stirling on the second last day of 2007

It was almost midnight -two hours after I was back in my room from the Edinburgh trip when Alex messaged to suggest on a trip to Stirling on the next day.

Stirling is well known for the significant Stirling Castle which is one of the largest and most important castles in Scotland.
