RE-WEAVING THE UNICORN TAPESTRIES

on saturday i finally went to stirling castle. i had been meaning to go for a very long time, probably since i moved to glasgow four years ago. i really wanted to see the unicorn tapestries, which is definitely one of the best things there, but i didn't realise you could also see the weavers re-making them in their studio. it was such a nice surprise to see them in progress, and the 12-year long project ends this year so i got there just in time. plus they have a good gift-shop and a good cafe, which are obviously the most important things of all


             there is a graveyard at the top of the hill next to the castle which is also worth exploring
