Book This Shore Excursion
Starting from €77,08 EUR / Adult
After a drive, set off on a walk to Dunnottar Castle, enjoying beautiful views of the Aberdeenshire Coast along the way. During your journey, hear how it was the residence where the Honours of Scotland, the Scottish crown jewels, were hidden from Oliver Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. Arrive to the cliff-top fortress that was once home of the Earls Marischal, one of the most dominant families in the land. Follow the path onwards, viewing lovely coves and bays, and catch glimpses of the castle as it slowly reveals itself. Take time to view the castle and absorb the spectacular views. Next, continue to Stonehaven, a lovely harbor town known to the locals as Stoney. Explore the town on your own, walking along the beach, observing the sailboats in the harbor, and taking in views of the sea, before your return to port.
  • Enjoy the walk to the Dunnottar Castle, which sits on the edge of a cliff offering sweeping views of the Aberdeenshire Coast along the way.
  • Tour the Dunnottar Castle, a medieval fortress that carries much historic significance, dating back to the 14th century.
  • Explore the seaside town of Stonehaven, where you can stroll along the beach and take in the views of the sailboats in the harbor.
