Stirling Castle

On June 12, I visited the recently reopened Royal Palace of Stirling Castle. The Palace had its grand opening the previous weekend after being closed for renovations over a couple of years. It has been completely been redone as it would have looked in the 16th century.

I had been to the Palace the first time I visited Stirling in December 2007, shortly before it was closed for renovations. The difference between then and now is huge. In 2007, the walls had been striped back and were bare stone. Historic Scotland did a great job. Below are a couple pictures I took.
