Hello everybody!
Last weekend one of my best friends from the Netherlands and I decided to visit stunning Dunnottar Castle in Stonehaven, which is about 20 minutes drive from Aberdeen. 
Dunnottar castle is a hilltop castle ruin located on a rocky headland about 3 kilometres south of Stonehaven. Back in the 17th century Dunnottar castle was used to hide the Scottish crown jewels from Oliver Cromwell’s invading army. If you want to learn more about the historical side of Dunnottar Castle, check out their website.

We spent about 2 hours at the castle. The entrance fee is £7, but definitely worth it. I think that you can easily do Aberdeen, Stonehaven and Dunnottar Castle in 1 day. If you have less then 1 day in the north east of Scotland - skip Aberdeen and Stonehaven and just see the castle.
