Peterhead Harbour

Peterhead (aka Peterheid as us Scot’s call it) is a small fishing town in Aberdeenshire in the North East of Scotland.

Newburgh

Dunnottar

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.

Stonehaven

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.

Thistles

On our recent trip back to Aberdeen to visit family and friends we took some time out to visit the Botanical Gardens at the University of Aberdeen’s Zoology campus; Cruickshank Botanic Garden.

The gardens were in bloom with many different flowers and plants, their collection of Giant Thistles is what captured my attention.
