It really is quite surreal standing here
on the fields of Bannockburn now surrounded by farm lands where the most
significant battle in Scottish history occurred and most importantly we have
here a statue of Robert the Bruce The namesake by which I like to associate. Braveheart is one of my favorite movies and although William Wallace was kind of
the star of the film, arguably Robert the Bruce was the bigger star. It is so cool to be able to stand right next to the monument of King Robert the Bruce. Very cool. I mean, you can almost try to imagine what
people who lived in that era would have thought if we told them that hundreds of
years, many hundreds of years from now, people would be walking around freely
on these lands trying to remember what their time was like. It’s both
fascinating, humbling, makes you glad that we live in a lot of the places that we
do these days. They fought for freedom, and we have
– “…our freedom!” And of course there’s a cache there. Next up: Stirling Castle This is wild!
This is Queen Anne Gardens in Stirling Castle Wow. Ooh, cool.
They’ve got cannons along the wall. You can see them from the ticket booth,
and I was wondering what they’re aimed at. There’s really just so much history here,
too much to put in one video. And that right there is the Wallace Monument And here we go!
It is high… ♫ da da da daaaa da da da daaa daaa ♫ ♫ daaa da da daaa … ♫ More stairs! We visit the Wallace monument, and of
course, there’s a cache there. Could it be a … unsuspicious pile of rocks? What!
BAD. GOOD. So we’re just about to stop for the day and… One more.
There’s always just one more. We pulled into Kilbryde Church.
This is a very very old church. But we found the cache. We’re hoping to find a cornerstone with a year on it
so we know exactly how old this church is. Oh look at this, cool. You’ve got the outer gate The inner door. Found the year!
Right up there at the gate. 1864 This tree right here – that is massive! That is a gorgeous tree and it’s covered in moss.
It’s gorgeous! Look at this thing. All right, well on that note we are off to
Castle Kilbryde where we are staying overnight, and tomorrow is the first of
two big hikes. So, got to get some sleep. And on that note,
happy caching, and excellent adventuring!
