My first day in Aberdeen wasn’t that grand from a photographic perspective, but it offered me the opportunity to really see the Granite city and its
folk bars (and yes, if you want to get to know the people of a place, go an check out the pubs and bars, lots of stories to hear and interesting things to see).
One place I would definitely recommend for the atmosphere and their good selection of beer & food , is Old Blackfriars pub, it felt like home, cosy & warm.
After my stop at the Old Blackfriar Pub, I go straight to the guest house to catch a few hours of good sleep and also decide on day 4s trip.
Luckily for me, my host was still around & after a few minutes of talking, I found out that the next day will be sunny and no rain was announced, so I decided to extend my stay for another day and go visit the ruins of Dunnottar Castle, a 13th century old castle built on a steep cliff (1st recording of settlements in the area go back to the 5th century).
Day 4 starts with a small walk close to the city port to catch a bus to Stonehaven, the closest town to Dunnotar Castle (~30min from the bus station).
One hour later I find myself in Stonehaven, a very picturesque town south of Aberdeen, on the shores of the North Sea and entrenched between rivers Cowie and Carron with a interesting history.
Had to take small break to take some abstract photos…
…and a selfie :)) before continuing the road to Dunnottar.
