We are just about at the coastal village of Whitehills as we leave the Red Well...

A peek inside the well before we go


Some of its story


Part of the old harbour wall at Whitehills




The harbour walls were built to withstand storms and the pounding of the waves. They are very thick.


A memorial to seafarers, sadly damaged


Whitehills marina







It is a lovely wee spot


Let's explore the village....

The weekend is almost over so I hope you had a good one before the onslaught of a newww week and the festive season madness. The shopping malls are all decked out in their Christmas clothes and the supermarket shelves a filling up with festive fare. Thebtown centre is distinctly busier. Joy!


We are just about to leave Whitehills and head back to Banff




The red brick is peculiar to the area. There used to be a brick factory nearby




A view from one of the blue shelters on the way back


The sea pounds the rocks on the back





Stay from a spout










Finally and with a flourish of foam we are back in Banff

This month's Soulmates walk was to Tollohill Woods on the outskirts of Aberdeen. It is part of the Banchory Devenick Estate...

We cross the old Bridge of Dee on the south side of town, one of the main routes in and out of town





The old bridge


At the end of the bridge there is a bonnie wee garden





We need to head uphill to get your the woods.


We are really in the countryside


With great views of the town


Let's head into the woods





The woodland walk provides surprise...
