Sightseeing
Torry Battery, is a site formerly fortified and last used defensively in WWII. It is now a classified ancient monument. It is an excellent viewing spot for dolphins at play and is a popular destination for tourists wishing to view some wildlife whilst staying in a city. It is close to our house and possible to have a lovely, easy coastal walk to get there. Close by are the remains of a rocket-propelled life-saving apparatus station and a Robert Stevenson-designed lighthouse and accompanying disused foghorn.

Dunnottar Castle, found close to Stonehaven, perched on an impressive 440 million year-old clifftop, was once so mysterious it was attacked by Vikings, captured by William Wallace, visited by Mary Queen of Scots and even hid the Scottish crown jewels from Cromwell. Today, it’s an awe-inspiring crumbling ruin, looking over the roaring North Sea, making it one of Aberdeenshire’s most treasured viewpoints. Franco Zeffirelli even used the spectacular Dunottar Castle to create the tormented world of Hamlet. More recently, Dunnottar Castle was the inspiration behind Disney’s Brave and Daniel Radcliffe & & James McAvoy filmed parts of Frankenstein at the castle!
