Day at a Time

Old Town Cemetery

I've blipped the Valley Cemetery many times before. It's one of the graveyards which comprise the Old Town Cemetery. It's located just beside the Castle and was landscaped in the 1840s. It is a burial ground for many of Stirling's residents of the time but also a place of education. It is devoted to Protestant martyrs and evangelists and offers some proselytising about Presbyterianism. There are some grand monuments and edifices within its boundary. Before her untimely death some 12 or so years ago a good friend had the conservation of the Old Town Cemeteries in her work portfolio.

Today's walk took us up to the castle and over the Gowan Hill. The paths on the hill were still a bit too icy for my liking but they were walkable with caution. There was hardly a soul to be seen till we got nearer home. People are taking the restrictions very seriously.

I'm making apple crumble tonight as our daughter (in the 'bubble') is coming round for a meal.
