UK Knit Camp was held in Stirling, Scotland, which is just north of, and pretty much equidistant between, Glasgow and Edinburgh. It's an old town steeped in history.

The castle itself sits on volcanic rock overlooking the area.
I spent a chunk of time there learning about the project to weave replicas of the Unicorn tapestry series now located in New York City, at The Cloisters (Metropolitan Museum of Art). I'll be writing a short article for Handwoven magazine including the answers to some of the questions I asked. Four of the seven tapestries have been completed. This is their temporary location within the castle; they will be hung in the palace, a portion of the castle that is being restored.
