    If you've seen it in real life you know how big it is Daryn. 67metres or 220 feet in old money! It's a fair trek up that spiral staircase as well! lol!

    Been to Stirling, just !.

    For a couple of hours anyway, sister got married there so we drove up & back on the day and thanks to Edinburgh bypass roadworks only just got there in time.
    Was touch and go at one point travelled 1 mile in 2 hours and rang to say we were not going to make it, didn't go down well not surprisingly I was taking the wedding photos.

    it might have been the rather grand registry office they got married in great building lovely old staircase made for some good photos.

    Was knackered an entire days driving for couple of hours but it was me sister so had to do it, ironically they lived in Cheltenham but because he's Scottish they got married in Stirling and once married moved down to Taunton.
    They married in Stirling on the Thursday and had the night time do in Taunton on the Saturday !, we didn't travel do for night time just couldn't manage it.

    She's a Blyth lass he's a dunblane lad meet Cheltenham married in Stirling moved to Taunton, still don't get why hey married in Stirling isn't the man meant to follow the woman !.

    You are supposed to be working tossing telegraph poles into holes in the ground not sight seeing.
