In the second week of the October school holidays, the children and I and the dogs had a little holiday. My first holiday in years, ok nowhere exotic and not that far away, but enjoyable none the less. My far flung travel plans, if I'm still capable will have to wait a while. We stayed in a cabin in the woods just north of Callandar. I was slightly concerned that the children may not enjoy my perfect idyll but they did and we would all return. We were very fortunate with the weather and we filled our days with excursions marvelling at the wondrous Trossachs scenery and generally enjoying ourselves. The dogs enjoyed it as well. As I mentioned in a previous post Drummond Castle gardens were used in Outlander. The bottom picture is of Doune Castle also used in Outlander. I did a massive binge of all two Outlander series and have to say after struggling to get through Episode 1, I really enjoyed it.
