Photo Journals – when pictures speak louder than words…
Setting off from Aberdeen on our coastal leg of the North East 250 road trip, our first stop was Slains Castle just beyond Cruden Bay. It’s said to have inspired Bram Stoker when writing ‘Dracula’.
We took the boys in search of vampires, just like in CBBC’s Scream Street, for a blustery morning in Aberdeenshire.
Slains Castle is woefully lacking any signage, but follow your nose, up a dirt track, just beyond Cruden Bay. You can see the ruins in the distance. Children cannot be left unsupervised here – the notion of ruins on a clifftop says it all, but they’ll have a fab wee adventure.
Our Story – We drove from Aberdeen to Slains Castle, before continuing on the North East 250 route (more info to come). We carried on to Peterhead for lunch at the Harbour Spring, before overnighting at the Banff Springs Hotel in Banff (review to come).
