A Day in Stonehaven

You don’t see the sun very often in Scotland, so when you do you have to make the most of it. This is exactly what myself and my friend, John, did a couple weeks ago.

We went on a road trip to Stonehaven for the afternoon. Stonehaven is a picturesque harbour town which is a short 30 minute drive south of Aberdeen. image1

As you can see it is a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon.

We went on a stroll up to Dunnottar Castle, passing these friendly faces along the way.


Dunnottar Castle is a medieval ruin located on a cliff that is a brief walk away from the mainland. If there is one thing I enjoy to do, it is visiting historical structures.


On our travels, we came across a a film crew filming an advert in front of the castle for a bank and a young man playing bagpipes in his kilt to entertain the crowd which made a nice extra to the day.


On our walk back, John kindly agreed to take some photos of my outfit. It’s pretty casual and most of the items I have spoken about before on previous posts. However, I did want to mention my vest top. I picked up this little gem in Thailand for the equivalent of about £5 and I just love it. Unfortunately, this means I cannot link where I bought this but I wanted to show you nonetheless.

One item you can purchase are my sunglasses. They are from the brand Quay Australia and you can find this exact pair here. I personally love this brand and think they have some great pieces. If you are from the UK and don’t want to buy internationally, then ASOS have a selection of Quay Australia sunglasses that you might be interested in which retail between £25 – £40.

We finished off our day with ice cream at the popular Aunt Betty’s Ice Cream and Sweet Shop. If you find yourself in Stonehaven, this is one place I highly recommend checking out. They have a great selection of ice cream flavours and each can be topped with a range of toppings at no extra cost. Brilliant.

I had a lovely day in Stonehaven and it’ll be a day I will cherish for a long time.
