Cawdor and beyond

Day 7: Nairn & Cawdor Castle
Today I'm thinking more pictures and less words to save myself a little time. Today we took the train to Nairn, then had to call the dial-a-bus to to Cawdor Castle.

Here are some pics from Nairn where we had a picnic at the beach and found a playground for the girls to play on. Sydney really wanted to stay and play in the sand, but we didn't have any supplies for cleaning up. She left when we said it was time to go, but not without some wailing and gnashing of teeth.

Here is Kyla at the entrance. It was filled with tons of antique furniture and historic portraits. They wouldn't let us take any pictures of the inside though. The gardens were beautiful. Sydney had great fun running around to hide in the little maze. Wallace and Gromit's Were-rabbit came to mind when I glimpsed those big rabbit ear shaped shrubs behind the garden wall. Kyla enjoyed taking multiple pictures of Sydney and the flowers.
