David and Sally Keener toured Scotland, Sally’s homeland, from May 14th to May 27th. Highlights included a highland journey to scenic Loch Lomond, dinner at the famous Drover’s Inn, a guided tour of the Cruacha Power Station (a water-based electrical generating plant tunneled into a granite mountain), shopping in Glasgow and many pubs. The top restaurant for this trip was the River House, situated next to a small lake and literally within view of Stirling Castle.
Note: (2018/01/13) The River House was an elegant restaurant in Sterling, Scotland. It sat on the shore of a small lake with Sterling Castle looming beside it on its steep, commanding hill. I was sad to learn recently that it had closed.
The Keeners went to Scotland for vacation from May 10 to May 21. Highlights included visits with Sally’s relatives, various pubs, shopping, Dave pulling a muscle, various pubs and limping around places like Glasgow.
