[Edinburgh—Monday, 11 June 1860]

Monday 11th Left Edina for Stirling. Saw the castle and the seat upon the walls from which poor Queen Mary gazed down upon her forbidden domains. From thence to Callander and from Callander by stage in the midst of the pouring rain past the Brigg o’Turk to the Tros[s]ach’s Hotel to pass the night. The twilight was very long, the rain ceased and after sitting under the pretty porch for an hour or two we took a delicious walk through the fragrant flowering woods towards Loch Katrine. Had we known it so near and had we known the rain would return so plentifully the next day we should certainly have walked on, as it was we returned, filled, overflowing with the glory which lay about us.
