A Frosty Walk to Dunrobin Castle

There was a glimmer of sunshine when we awoke so, as I hadn't been out of the house for the last three days, we decided to make the most of it and head to the coast.
We parked up in a small street 

of lovely cottages 

and this good looking building which had 1894 in stone on the side 

I liked its green door and it said Architects office above it

The road was a little icy but we headed towards the sea

across this fast moving stream

this lovely house has its road access through the water


You can see the frost on the ground as we walked through the gate


You could hear the gentle sound of the waves and the sea gulls.  We walked along the coastal path, passing a few people wrapped up like us against the cold but the sun was shining.

Looking behind us you can just see the monument to the Duke of Sutherland on top of Ben Braggie.

I got a wet backside but couldn't resist just sitting a while and looking out over the Moray Firth 

and as we walked further onwards we saw the rear of the castle

There are 189 rooms in the castle and it dates back to the early 1300's


What a wonderful view they have from the windows, overlooking the castle gardens and towards the beach

What a lovely morning we had and as we strolled back to the car the sun retreated behind the clouds once again.

  1. Thank you for this visit to the Moray Firth. Lovely. We are in the north of NZ in 26 degree heat so nothing like that! I haven't been so good at taking photos but I did manage to add a couple of items to the package that should soon start its journey to the Highlands. Do you live in a village or a single house on a hill?
