Hello folks, another gratuitous Scottish image from my personal collection this time of Dunnottar Castle near Stonehaven. We will be visiting this national treasure next June on our way to Orkney. During Cromwell’s invasion in the 1650s it held out for almost a year. The Scottish crown jewels were held there and successfully smuggled out and hidden before the castle was eventually surrendered.
The camera on my phone really let me down towards the end of my tour. I’m safely home now and would like to thank everyone of the many people who helped me along the way. I look forward to getting back later this year..
