Unfortunately, the castle was closed so we could not wander its towers or inner courtyard. However, the grounds around the castle were open so Mar and I stretched our legs and had a look around.
Funny...the castle itself was closed but the gift shop was open for business. At least the loos were available for our use too. I had a wee bit of time to take a gander at the gift shop's wares. SCORE! Gifts for mom and dad...and they were on sale! My dad plays golf so what more of an apropos gift than a golf shirt from the birthplace of the sport! Plus it had an embroidered emblem. For my mom, I got her a beautiful small hand-embroidered tablecloth that had a lavender colored thistle flower at its center. My dad has worn the shirt many times however, I have yet to see my mom bust out the table cloth...hmmm perhaps she thinks it is way too nice...go figure?!?
