View across Sterling, Scotland

The story behind the image

Earlier today I shared a photo of Stirling Castle. Here’s the awesome view from the castle towards the Wallace Monument, the tower on the hill opposite of Stirling Castle, built in 1869 to remember Scot Lord William Wallace. He defeated in 1297 the English in the Battle of Stirling Bridge and freed the castle which was occupied by King Eduard I. The monument can be visited, and on clear, sunny days the view must be fantastic.

We were still haunted by the dark clouds (that were coming from the west coast), but at least the rain had stopped!
