This weeks picture was captured when we were out a walk on the beach at St Fergus. St Fergus is a small local village just over 4 miles from Peterhead and it is definitely worth a visit! We are very fortunate as we have access to some of the most spectacular beaches in the UK and they are all right on our doorstep.
Last week River Ugie featured in the blog and it features again this week. If you cross the River Ugie at Balmoor House by the “chain brigg”, you enter the Parish of St Fergus. What remains of Inverugie Castle lies on the left hand side in the trees. The castle was built by the Cheynne family in the 12th century and these remains are all that is left of a wooden motte-and-bailey castle. If you continue further up the river, you will be able to see Ravenscraig Castle. The castle was also known as the “Craig of Inverugie” and is a ruined L-shaped tower house.
As we move towards spring time and the longer days, it is great to get out more and explore what we have in and around the area. Why not do the same!
