Insider certainly had a great time meeting old friends, making new ones and listening to the experts give lectures at this year's ASTA congress. But some of our best times during the trip were spent exploring several old -- and we mean really, really old -- cemeteries. Here's a quick rundown on three of Insider's favorites:
* The cemetery at Stirling Castle outside Glasgow was notable for its positioning on a hillside just below the castle and next to a beautiful church with expansive views.
* Weedy and overgrown Greyfriars, in the heart of Perth, an hour's train ride from Glasgow, has a forgotten and melancholy air about it.
* Glasgow's Necropolis sits on a steep hill behind the cathedral, its exterior walls grown black with centuries of soot. The Necropolis is notable in part because of its many and outrageously elaborate Victorian tombstones.
