I was surprised to see an Oystercatcher so far inland (Castle Fraser is miles from the coast) but apparently it’s quite common.

    Beautiful post, Mark 🙂

    The castle looks great and hard to imagine that it’s around 400 years old…

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Each and every photo a gem, Mark!
    Aaaaah, we’re so much looking forward to our four weeks in Scotland next spring. 🙂

      Thanks Dina….you’ll have a great time. We are heading back to Scotland next year too….the Outer Hebrides for two weeks.

    Wonderful images! It all reminds me of the TV show here called “Outlander” based on the book series by Diana Gabaldon. My favorite series ever and I love everything to do with medieval times!
