John O'Hara planned and arranged a separate tour for August 4, which was originally a free day. Since our other options were hazy at best, Pat and I decided to join the group.
The tour consisted of a visit to Stirling Castle, a parade to the Bannockburn site, a climb up the Wallace Monument and a Dinner Cruise on Loch Lomond. The first two events will be covered in Part One (this section) and the final events may be accessed at the bottom of this page.
The sign of the site of the postern immediately below reads: "Beneath your feet is one of two back entrances into the nether bailey. Blocked up around 1689 during the first Jacobite uprising led by 'Bonnie Dundee'."
At the rear of the building in the next photo, John Damion lept off wearing wings of chicken feathers to fly to Paris. Advisers said that he should have used eagle feathers.
The band made a ceremonial march to the circular monument to Bannockburn. Afterwards, lunch was served at a restaurant in Stirling before the buses took us to the Wallace Monument.
