      Aww, what kind comments, Jean. Thank you very much for reading my blog! I’m so glad you enjoyed it. Actually, we’re very interested in watching the film too. I think it is likely to be extremely dramatic, so do prepare yourselves. x

    Another fabulous blog, Beth. It’s like reading a chapter in one of your books. I loved Jack’s pithy comments as usual, and the castle itself looks fabulous! What a great day out and what stunning scenery. The village looks delightful so worth a wander through as well. I’ll look forward to reading about that next time you go.

      Thanks ever so much, Val, I’m so glad you enjoyed the read. As you know, Jack isn’t a natural tourist, but even he was impressed by the extraordinary sights. I’ll be sure to share my experiences when I have a mooch around the village. Mind you, I suspect it won’t be with my culture-averse hubby!

      Thank you, Nancy. I could easily imagine you living in the Young castle! 🙂
