In June while visiting Aberdeen we took a day trip to Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire while there we spent the afternoon at nearby Dunnottar Castle. Although I have visited the site of Dunnottar Castle several times over the years this was the first time that I explored the actual castle itself. The castle provides some majestic views over the North Sea.


Back in June while visiting friends and family in Aberdeen, we took a trip to Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire. While growing up my parents would take me on many day trips to Stonehaven and it has become one of my favourite costal towns in Aberdeenshire.

Banchory & the River Dee

On our recent trip to Aberdeen we took some time out to visit Banchory a small rural town situated in Aberdeenshire, where I spent many a summers day while growing up. Banchory is considered the gateway to the Royal Deeside.

On this visit we spent some time taking in the views on the banks of the river Dee. The rolling rural countryside that surrounds the banks of Dee and the nearby river Feugh.
