Traveling in Scotland Part 1

As I have mentioned in previous posts, I recently went to Scotland for a week: I stayed with my friend in Aberdeen and I even attended a few of her English lectures at the University of Aberdeen. We also visited the beach, which was nice in spite of the cold and wind!

The university buildings are absolutely gorgeous; in fact, I loved the architecture there in general! Everything is either quaint and charming, or majestic and reminiscent of Hogwarts!

On my first whole day there (traveling day does NOT count) we had to have proper afternoon tea with scones and sandwiches, which happened to be absolutely delicious. We also did some major shopping and sight-seeing (although the sight-seeing was mostly my friend saying “This is an important building! And so is this!”).

In addition to spending most of our days in Aberdeen, we visited Stonehaven – a lovely little village/town a short train ride away from the center of Aberdeen. The famous Dunnottar castle is located there, a few mile long hike from the harbor of Stonehaven.

Even my friend, who suffers from a fear of heights, managed to walk to the castle with me, which was great because the view was breathtaking – it was Scotland at its finest: green moors and castle ruins!

Stay tuned for more photos from my trip later this week!
