Hike to the ruins of Dunnottar Castle
Walking along the crispy cliffs of Scotland’s East Coast the mentality is the heavier the better. One strong gust of wind could send you over the edge into the cool waters below. Situated between the jagged rock face stands the remains of 15th century Castle Dunnottar. The castle is sadly now in ruins, due to the elements and lack of preservation early on. This place is none-the-less still worth a visit and as the thought that the crown jewels were hidden there centuries before is to enough to give any history buff a case of shivers. If not the winds still will. Do yourself a favor and hike the winding trail along the sea for an even more memorable experience. It truly feels like your in another world.
