When in Scotland… visit a castle!

Matt and I were in Scotland for a couple of days over New Year’s. Before seeing the fireballers in Stonehaven for Hogmanay, we decided to spend the day exploring Stonehaven and checking out Dunnottar Castle.

It was cold and windy but we walked all the way from Stonehaven to the castle along the beautiful coastline.

Even in this grey and cold weather it was an absolutely gorgeous walk. I had to stop every two minutes to just stand and take in the scenery (and take photos).

It is very well positioned! It would have been impossible to approach the castle unnoticed because any visitors (including us) had to go all the way down the hill first and then up again.Dunnottar Castle

This was inside the castle on one of the highest points.

The castle mainly consisted of these kinds of ruins. Below is a photo of the chapel where we walked in on a marriage proposal! The man was on one knee and had a ring and everything. Very well done, I have to say.

This is the view from one of the castle windows. I wish I had that kind of view from my bedroom.
