A Walk Up to Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven

MEADOWS UP THE HILL...

Our calories from the lunch was soon burnt when we walked up the hill leading to the Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven.  Dunnottar Castle is a ruined medieval fortress build in the 15th and 16th centuries, located upon a rocky headland on the northeastern coast of Scotland, 3 kilometers from Stonehaven.

This time round, we used another way to walk up the hill, it was around 3pm then and very chilly.  Days are shorter now, it could grow dark anytime around 4pm onwards.  So we have an hour to make our way up and down the hill, walking on the grass pathway up, leading us to mesmerizing scenery of the cliffs and the sea below....
The meadow walkers... 

This is the way we went up the hilly... 
The stairs leading to the Dunnottar Castle... 
It was a long way.. the long and winding stairway...
No, we did not go there... 
We just passed it by.... 
And came to this part of the cliff instead.... 
Nice... breathtaking... 
We stood up here and let the wind blew into our faces... 
*Yeah, have to be careful that I don't get blown away too!*
We could hear the waves splashing about below...
Our shadows making our presence here... 
And then we made our way back to our car....
The sun is setting down at around 4pm... 
Getting the feel of the cold... 
Yes, this is a Good Walk!
Would love to come back again soon!!
