January Light: Stirling Castle

A duo of square skies seen from Stirling Castle – late afternoon and early evening sunlight. Inside the castle, there was plenty of candlelight and firelight – both artificial, but still square.

Linked to Becky’s January Squares Challenge – words ending in light.

    Really interesting photos, Anabel. Impressive on how you carried the theme throughout this post.

      Thanks! For this one, I had the advantage of knowing what I was looking for and took pictures accordingly. It was just last weekend. Most other photos are old ones adapted.

    Excellent photographs. I wont even comment of costs or anything (whatever they are) since it’s been too many years since I had my (young) children at Stirling Castle. .

      I looked it up just out of interest – it’s £16 for an adult, £9.60 for a child. That would be an expensive outing these days!

        Just relayed that information to my Annabell and her gast was flabbered. Her comment was that it was still free when we were there :o)

    OK, I have to see this castle! I love the ceilings and am glad that the lights are fake otherwise parts of the ceiling would get blackened by the candlelight. I love the red/burgundy stenciling and the old candlelabra.

    Great photos. We’ve been to Stirling and did the long walk up to the castle but didn’t actually go in. It was pretty busy and I think a bit pricey for the couple of hours we had available. Maybe when we have a bit longer next time.

      I love it, and as we have Historic Scotland membership we can pop in for free any time. We thought this would be a short visit but we were there 3 hours!

    I’ve been there! They were almost finished restoring the great hall and it was gorgeous.

    Used to be a lot cheaper than Edinburgh Castle. Luckily, I got in for free last open day. Stirling is a cracking wee place to explore.


I'd love to hear what you think!
