Pennan

The Scottish coast is lined with small villages like Pennan, which are just sat perfectly with their single row of coloured homes, and their small harbour, and they usually only have a single track road into them down what feels like the steepest hill know to man.

But Pennan has a very famous red phone box in the heart of the village, which film enthusiasts travel from all over the world to make a phone call from, as Pennan was one of the main locations in the 1980’s film Local Hero.

Mill of Nethermill

A friend from work told me about this abandoned outdoor swimming pool in Tarlair which is up in Macduff, so myself and Emma decided to head up there a couple of weekends ago. However, I didn’t actually do any digging before I went, so when we got there, there was basically a fun day going on, which included barbecues, bouncy castles, and all that kinda sh*t, so it was a bit of a wasted journey.

Aberdeen Beach

Before you read any further, this post mainly came to be because of Pokemon… but that’s definitely not a bad thing!

Aberdeen beach is an absolute hot spot for Pokemon apparently, and loads of people can be found at the park at Fittie camped out playing the game until the early hours of the morning, but I didn’t believe it was actually a thing, so we went down for a wander to investigate.

There’s no pictures of said people playing Pokemon unfortunately, but we were treated to some lovely colours in the sky, so I snapped that while Emma tried to catch a Pidgey or something.

Bullers of Buchan

The light nights are no longer, we have officially hit October and the dark nights are rolling in, so trying to make the most of what free time I actually have during the week to get out and about, and that only seems to be on a Sunday, sadly.

Thankfully, there was no F1 this weekend (sorry Emma), and it was a pretty glorious day considering it’s October and Aberdeen, so we went out for a bit before I had to go to work.

When we were at New Slains Castle the other week, we were speaking to a guy and he made us aware of some places to check out further north of the castle, and since our car was parked in the opposite direction, we said we’d do this another day.

So, that was what today’s plan was!
