Gardenstown, Aberdeenshire

Hubby and myself went for a drive across to Gardenstown this afternoon. It’s been ages since we visited this seaside village located on the NE coast of Scotland, not far from Banff. It must be at least 8 years since we last took a trip out.

To my shame, I’d almost forgotten how beautiful this seaside location is – even on an overcast day. The village has a real charm and ‘old-worldly’ kind of atmosphere. I could have spent all afternoon walking around this place with my camera. I can only imagine how great it would be during ‘golden hour’ on a non-overcast day.

If you are ever visiting Aberdeenshire, please don’t miss out and do try and visit this charming coastal village. You won’t be disappointed.

Next, we headed to Banff. I haven’t edited the photos from Banff yet and may leave them for another post.

In the meantime, if you have a spare minute or so, why not check out this video by Sean Ruddy. Sean’s video does not cover the whole village of Gardenstown, but it covers the seafront, as do my photos. There is a lot more to be seen in this village which I haven’t recorded here, but I’m sure you will agree from what I have shared – it’s a real bonny wee place.
