A Drive Up Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven, Aberdeen

WITH TUMMIES FULLY FILLED WITH FISH N CHIPS AND ICE CREAM, IT IS TIME TO SET OFF.... Aaron drove another ten minutes and stopped to visit the Dunnottar Castle.  Last year I stayed inside the car and waited because the trail is not suitable for wheelchair.  This time I managed to go and I need to hold on to my son's arms for the trail was quite stoney and rocky.... Ever since I hurt my leg last year, i have no confidence walking along uneven roads.  I worry about twisting my leg again... But if I did not visit Dunnottar this time, I would not be able to feel this breathtaking scenery....

This dramatic and evocative ruined cliff top fortress was the home of the Earls Marischal, once one of the most powerful families in Scotland. Steeped in history, this romantic and haunting ruin is a photographer’s paradise, a history lover’s dream and an iconic tourist destination for visitors the world over. Visit Dunnottar Castle for your own unforgettable experience and discover the importance of Dunnottar – an impregnable fortress that holds many rich secrets of Scotland’s colourful past.

Our walk started from here.....
Soon ... I saw this awesome sight before my eyes....
The blue sea around 7pm in the evening... The days were longer here...
The cliffs ... The kids... I was so fearsome for them...
The castle in sight on the right....
Even my girl was near the cliff.... I have to stand at a distance to watch.... Very phobia...
I am glad they are not like me....
Scenery Reminds me of some movies....
It would be more beautiful to see the sun set....
Can't leave this place without my poses, right?  Lol....
One....
Two....
Three.....
Four......  That's it!!
I have left my "footprints" here this time!!
