Our Trip to Lovely Culross

On Maunday Thursday we drove to Culross, stopping first at McCallum Bagpipes, between Troon and Kilmarnock. Then on to a lovely lunch before continuing our journey.

We stopped to take this photo as we drove into the town of Culross, which lies on the Firth of Forth.

The atmosphere of this village can take your breath away. I seem to take a lot of photos of doorways and windows. The cobblestone streets are a bit tricky for walking but you don't think about that much since there is so much beauty here.
This is Robin's house, where we were staying. She and her family were away for the Easter holidays and she graciously left the key at a friend's B and B just down the road.

Eley House has a lovely garden out front and a stone wall with gaily painted gate to border the front garden.

I want a house like that!

I do too! The nice thing is that the inside has been modernized but not overly so. Love the deep window sills--the walls must be 2 ft thick!
