Stirling Castle

We’ve had fantastic visits to Stirling Castle this week, heard about all sorts of things and tried on all sorts of costumes šŸ™‚

I didn’t know that Mary, Queen of Scots, couldn’t speak French when she was sent to France! (As if it wasn’t bad enough to be sent away from your Mum and your home).

Anyway, how was your visit to the castle? Leave a comment telling us what you thought of the trip AND what you found out that you didn’t know before?
