Captured at the end of day.

We currently are exploring the Scottish Highlands. This is captured at Cruden Bay, Aberdeenshire, Scotland.

- Located approximately 23 miles north of the city of Aberdeen known locally as the granite city and world wide as the oil capital of Europe.
Cruden Bay is a costal village with beautiful walks along sea cliffs and beach. In days gone by the village was a popular retreat for the landed gentry, and the legacy of those days are that there are many and varied attractions to be seen within the village and it’s surrounding countryside. – ref:
