First off, apologies for the two month absence, I’ve literally been trying for two months to get my new site up and running but I’ve been absolutely swamped so have completely failed in getting it ready.
However, the good folks over at Clarks sent me some shoes, so I figured I’d make an appearance just to do a little bit of writing along with some shots.

When we were up at Fochabers the other weekend, we were hampered by the rain quite a bit, but we managed to catch a break on the Saturday, so headed to Millbuies to take a stroll around the loch.
There’s not much else unless you fancy a spot of fishing, but the loch and surrounding areas were extremely peaceful, and the sun was out, so we took some time to chill when we were halfway around.

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.

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!

A couple of weeks ago, we actually tried to walk to what we thought was New Slains Castle, but turns out we were actually quite far away from it, and probably would have fallen off a cliff before we got there.
So, it was a Monday holiday, and we decided that we would try again, but this time we would actually make it successfully to the castle, and not go on some wild detour… my bad.

With summer well and truly over, and darkness creeping in earlier and earlier every day, it doesn’t leave much time for exploring by the time work finishes, but last night we made it a little bit north to Collieston, a small former fishing village in between Newburgh and Cruden Bay.

We had literally been trying to get to Loch Muick for three months, but due to work, weather and a bunch of other things, we never got the chance. So with the end of summer pretty much upon us, we decided to try and get out there!
From Aberdeen, getting to Glen Muick is about a 1.5 hour journey, mainly because of the country roads, and then the 7 mile long single lane road which is basically a disaster waiting to happen when there’s a car coming the other way. Sadly, you have to navigate this road to get to the Spittal of Glen Muick car park where you get access to Loch Muick, and the nearby Lochnagar.
