Beautiful Britain - 3 Castles in One Day, Aberdeenshire (Part 3)

Hi there everyone

Well, here we are at the third and final castles of our 3 Castles in One Day big day out.

We'd spent ages in the gardens at Crathes and Drum Castles and now it was time to hightail it to Craigievar.

It was quite late in the day and we were all pretty shattered but were all excited about seeing this last castle of the day.

The National Trust for Scotland website says ...
"If fairytales were real, all castles would look like Craigievar."
As we got closer we were all eagerly looking for the first glimpse of the castle. We were not disappointed ...
... It really did look like a castle from a fairytale. A dusky pink, nestled amongst every shade of green we could imagine.

We stopped for more glimpses through the trees on the driveway and were getting more excited by the minute ...
Again, we'd timed our visit when the castle was closed, but we were still able to explore the grounds and we followed the short footpath from the car park to the castle. eagerly awaiting the big reveal, which was never going to be anything but a sheer delight ...
From here it was simply a case of oohing and aahing at every angle - it just looked lovely from every direction ...


Apologies to anyone who was hoping to see anything other than photos of a pink castle, I just couldn't help myself ...

That was really all we had time for, though of course there's always time for a quick selfie ...
It was soon time for us to be on our way, we'd had a really long, but fabulous day, and we had an appointment with four fish suppers back in Ballater.

I still have a couple more posts to share from our trip to Scotland to share with you, but may have a look at something different next week, hope to see you back here 😉
