Nice little church.

Very interesting story of St Gangolf. Finding the entry to this church is a puzzle which is worth awhile when visiting Trier. You would see the tower of the church from Hauptmarkt but, you would be riddled with the shops and restaurants beside it.

Maybe I have been overwhelmed after visiting the famous cathedral, so my 4 stars may seem bit harsh, but I still think this one is definitely worth visiting. After all, it is located in city center. Germany does love her churches and this one is no exception, and it is well maintained so give her a go and take a few shots with your camera.

Beautifull Building. The garden is quiet and cosy. A perfect place to photograph.

Doune Castle

Doune Castle was originally built in the thirteenth century, then probably damaged in the Scottish Wars of Independence, before being rebuilt in its present form in the late 14th century by Robert Stewart, Duke of Albany (c. 1340–1420), the son of King Robert II of Scots, and Regent of Scotland from 1388 until his death. Duke Robert"s stronghold has survived relatively unchanged and complete, and the whole castle was traditionally thought of as the result of a single period of construction at this time. The castle passed to the crown in 1425, when Albany"s son was executed, and was used as a royal hunting lodge and dower house.

In the later 16th century, Doune became the property of the Earls of Moray. The castle saw military action during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and Glencairn"s rising in the mid-17th century, and during the Jacobite risings of the late 17th century and 18th century.
