A foggy castle

I’ve been traveling back down memory lane this week to when we were in Scotland this time last year.  There are soooo many photos that I still have to share with you and eventually I will get to them.  Here is just one from our Scotland road trip.

Castles and as many as possible were high on my must see list and we did see quite a variety of them but this one (along with Eilean Donan) was very high on the list.  Dunnottar Castle is in the highlands of Scotland east of where we were staying in Aboyne and just south of Stonehaven.

It sits atop 160 ft high cliffs that over look the North Sea on an area over 3 acres in size.  The views are stunning… that is if you manage to visit on a day when you can see the views.  On the two days we were in the area the castle was totally fogged in.  But we went anyway and while foggy we did get to see this castle grounds which were built to come close to being impregnable.

Will share more in the future.  Teri  📷

  3. It was foggy when we were there about 10 days ago. It was one of my favorite castles in Scotland. I love your photo.

    Dunnottar is fabulous! I imagine it was extra atmospheric in the fog.
