Hello everyone and welcome to August! ❤
Last week I spent a week in Aberdeenshire in Eastern Scotland 🏴 for a little summer break as going abroad with Covid is still not a viable option right now 😦 (soon hopefully though!!) ~
I thought I’d share some of the photos I took while exploring below:
We did a lot of things including some lovely woodland walks as the forests around Aberdeenshire are honestly stunning!
They are so dense and vast you could get lost in them – if you’ve ever seen the film ‘Dog Soldiers’ the woods would make you think werewolves are about to pop out and eat you haha.
We also ate a lot of delicious food (maybe too many nice things…oops) such as these lovely apple danishes that me and my boyfriend ate in the car in the mountains ~
We also explored some old castles (it’s Scotland you have to!) such as the ruined Dunnattor Castle on the coast.
I find it really fascinating to take a little look into how people used to live and how lucky we are to live the way we do today 🙂
Looking for crabs in the rock pools below the castle ~
One of the harder walks we did was up ‘Scotly Hill’.
Very steep hill that has a tower at the top that you have to walk through forest to get to! Such a great walk with lots of wonderful scenery ❤
Sadly in Aberdeenshire there aren’t many Lochs like in the highlands but we did find this small loch that was rather pretty with a castle on it in the distance 🙂
Hope you enjoyed this little blog post ~
