After Glenisla, we went to Dunottar Castle. It was in a really unique and beautiful location on a piece of land that was almost and island. It was on high cliffs overlooking the sea. You had to hike down a steep path then back up to reach the castle gate. One thing that was particularly unique was that it had a Lion's den where they kept one lion to watch and guard the castle.
In Aberdeen Richard doesn’t know as many people so we had to stay at a hotel. The hotel happened to be next to the LDS chapel in Aberdeen, but we didn’t realize it until we drove up (Richard served in the other ward/other building). The fridge in our room was unplugged and things were situated in a way that we couldn’t plug it back in. We called reception and they couldn’t fix it so they upgraded us to a suite twice the size and with a kitchenette (unfortunately it wasn’t of any use to us). Aberdeen is nicknamed the “Granite City” and has a really unique look. All the houses and city buildings were made of grey granite. Richard said it sparkles and looks nice in the sun, but unfortunately it was rainy while we were there.
