July 30 – Stirling

The day started  as usual, up at the normal time, breakfast and morning chores.  We drove around looking for a Tesco store so Terese could buy Magners to take home, unfortunately we could not  find one but we found the road to Stirling , so we took it.   When we arrived at Stirling Castle we all felt we had seen enough castles and thought the entrance fee was a little  too expensive.  We decided to take pictures of the  outside of  the castle and also of the Wallace Monument which lies a bit away but  after taking  photos of the castle  we went down to Stirling Old Town  and took a coffee break with tasty muffins instead.  We went back to the car and continued our journey to Newcastle, tomorrow we take the boat home.  We drive Edinburgh Bypass and decide to drive the coastal route.  In Berwick-upon-Tweed we have a break and eat lunch at McDonalds and buy some Magners for Terese in the nearby shopping centre. When we drive south to Belford we choose the coastal route, it is nicer and there should be more campsites along the motorway.  Even today we notice it is a Bank holiday all the campsites are fully booked, but in Craster  we meet a kind owner who  finds us a spot for our tent so we decide to spend the night there.
