Royal Apartments at Stirling Castle

Today, was the final day of our small group tour covering Scotland.

We departed our lodgings in Dunkeld and walked round to the local Cathedral, the site of which has a long history dating back to the 600s. Over the millennia the site has witnessed worship under the Celtic Church, the Catholic Church and, currently, Church of Scotland (Presbyterian).
