A picturesque walk along the Stonehaven coastline leads you to a ruin of a castle. Dunnottar Castle is a stunning work of history set upon a cliffside just outside the town of Stonehaven. Nothing surrounds the castle, aside from fields, water, and sheep, making it a peaceful location and an overall relaxing walk.
As you walk down the path, the castle grows from a distant blur to a magnificent fortress. Though it is only a ruin, you are able to see the spender it once was.
Though I would like to be able to speak out the experience from within the castle, I am unable to. My walk ended in a bit of disappointment, when I found out the castle was closed due to high winds.
Even with my inability to enter the fortress, I appreciate the stark design of all ancient castles, especially one with its history so obviously shown.
