My first treat when I got my new job was to get me and Tam Historic Scotland passes. We spend enough time exploring everywhere else, it seemed like it was time to start snooping around official places. I got a super deal where we get fifteen months for the price of twelve, plus at £6.65 a month for both of us it was a bargain, especially considering how much we've used it in the first month alone. Our first trip was up to Castle Campbell at Dollar a few weeks ago. We parked at the bottom of the hill and walked up through the woods to the castle. Fun fact - it used to be called Castle Glume, it has a stream running through the grounds called the Burn of Sorrow and...we saw a wedding there. Interesting choice of venue! It was a rather misty, damp day but it was great for exploring, especially up in the tower with the amazing views. We followed it up with lunch at a great cafe nearby, where I got to indulge my latest obsession - goats cheese on toast, yum.
Has anyone been?
