Dedicated to the clan Hay: The Earls of Erroll, chiefs of Clan Hay, were a powerful family in the area for generations. The family prospered after William Hay, 18th Earl of Erroll, married the daughter of King William IV. Francis Hay, 9th Earl of Erroll, built New Slains Castle after James VI had destroyed his castle, known as Slains Castle near Collieston, after the Hays participated in the rebellion of 1594. But, over time, misfortunes befell the Hays – and in 1916, the castle and contents were put up for sale.

Wonderful view of the North Sea.
The gulls rest on the rocks resisting the winds and the waves.

Location: Slains Castle – Cruden Bay, North East coast of Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
