Sun is back with us today 🙂 headed east towards the coast but happened across Glamis castle. Iain offered a treat of the guided tour around the castle – well would be rude not to as love castles and no trip is complete without a visit to at least one.
We got to see some of the private rooms as well as the older parts. Nearly every room had a reference or photo of the Queen mum and those that didn’t then Mary Queen of Scots had slept there (we have never been to a castle she hasn’t slept in). Absolutely stunning castle and a ‘lively’ commentary from the American tour guide to say the least. From the outside its real fairytale castle with turrets galore and in the paddocks by the car park highland cows and calves were munching outside the camper whilst we ate our lunch like a couple of Pikeys in the van.
From there we were heading coast bound again but came across Forfar so thought we may as well stop here for the night. Campsite on the edge of a lake in town. All brand new and quite swish but not sure if the 8ft fences are to keep us in or to keep the locals out? Iain has strolled into town and back to check out the shops, he came back empty handed so guessing its not a top shopping destination.
Now enjoying the sunshine before a bit of tea and tv for the evening.
