    If you visit Dunnottar Castle take care

    The Stairs

    Favorite thing: Stonehaven meets all the requirements for disabled visitors. The law in Scotland is changing in the next few year and will mean all attractions and buildings must be equipped to facilitate easy access for disabled visitors. Unfortunately Dunnottar Castle can not implement these changes because of its cliff top position. There are one hundred and seventy nine steps leading down from the car park, add to this the old stone steps which lead into the castle and you will see why access is difficult. Even if you are able bodied wear sensible footwear and be prepared for a very steep climb back up to your car.

    Diverse Scenery Awaits

    Favorite thing: The area around Stonehaven with its seascapes and south Deeside and Royal Deeside with its forests and hills provides a wide diversity, but always great scenery. Sparsely populated with fishing, farming and forestry the only main industries, there is always something to take your interest here. The forestry Commission has control over a lot of the land but you can still find the sheer beauty of little saplings growing where only nature planted them. Open countryside with nothing to detract the eye is always a favourite thing with me.

    The Beer Hunt continues...in Stonehaven...

    The ever present pint of McEwan's

    Favorite thing: Wherever you go, whatever you do, sampling the local beer is definite must.

    What do the locals drink, what beer is most popular, which beer is hardest to find, does it come in a half pint glass just like grandma used to drink…or better still, a full pint glass like I drink??? These are all good questions that need to be answered...

    Scotland is truly blessed with extraordinary woodlands, majestic mountains, powerful rivers, dramatic coastline, fine whiskies and some of the best beers in the United Kingdom. There are so many good beers that I have trouble choosing a favorite. After all, how can a poor boy decide what’s best to consume when they are all so damn good...

    Anyway, on a recent trip back to Aberdeenshire, I “rediscovered” my fondness for McEwan’s Ale while sitting in a pub in Stonehaven. True, it’s not particularly hard to find outside of Scotland, but drinking McEwan’s in the heartland is a truly different and refreshing experience.
