Our final day in Scotland

We didn't have any set plans for our last full day in Scotland except to end up in Glasgow at the end of the night. Our fake-Scotsman host in Dumfries mentioned a castle just outside of the city that was worth a visit, so we headed there in the morning.

Unfortunately, our lack-of-castle-seeing luck was in full sway.

The countryside surrounded the entrance was gorgeous, however.

We then headed back into Glasgow and decided to see the main cathedral that was closed on our first day.

It was in the process of being renovated, but it was still beautiful to explore.

This huge cemetery was just outside the cathedral on a hill. Unfortunately, we didn't climb the hill to explore it. I think I was feeling sick or something?

With one more night to spend in Scotland, we decided to drive back up to Stirling, which ended up being our favorite place we visited. Again, since it was getting dark, this photo of Stirling Castle from below was the only picture we managed while we were there.

The next morning we left Glasgow on a super early flight leaving Scotland behind us wanting to come back another time to visit during the summer months to see it in its green form. Perhaps one day...

And lastly, I leave you with the last photo I snapped in Scotland: Matt eating a Kinder Bueno in our B&B in Glasgow. Glorious.

I think it's become tradition to photograph Matt while eating Kinder Buenos when we travel. I like it.
