A trip to Aberdour Castle











Our latest stop on our Historic Scotland Summer of Castles tour (that's what I'm calling this summer now.  It's valid.) was Aberdour in Fife.  Fun fact - Alison was just there too, and she was wearing the top she made from fabric I swapped her!  I wish we'd timed it so we could have been there together, what a funny coincidence.  It was beautiful the day we went, so a picnic was in order.  It was the day after the photography workshop and I had my camera in hand the whole day, testing all my settings again!  I think Parsnip knew what I was up to because he normally hates getting his picture taken but he was being such a poser this day.  We had a great walk around the gardens and castle, one of the oldest in Scotland.  The gardens especially were lovely, really colourful and neat, and it was SO. WARM. which made for a fab time.  We only ended up here because we had plans to do a car boot sale then slept in - I very much support our tired bodies in this decision...

I'll leave you with a collage of what happens when you try to take a selfie with a restless dog...

    1. It seems to be a good place for a sunny day, I'm already wondering how much exploring we'll get done in the winter...
