Stirling Castle quill and paper



In the last and final leg of our Scotland family road trip, Palimpsest spent a day in Stirling, home of the wonderful Stirling Castle, which has been beautifully restored and re-opened to the public in 2011. The magnificent Stirling Heads are displayed in the gallery, King James V's and his Queen's bedchambers are shining in all their glory. On Mary Guise's bedchamber a table covered with heavy tapestry is laid out for card-playing. Palimpsest couldn't help but notice the quill and paper. Replicas of course, but a cozy detail.
