Dunnottar Castle is a concisely sight of Scotland. The rock in the North Sea topped by the castle is shown on many travel prospectus. Indeed it is very impressive. Looking at the only access over a narrow ridge and through a dark tunnel under the rock I could understand why the castle withstood a long siege of the English troops. We extensively visited the spacious castle. 
On two locations it was possible to look into the nests of seagulls with their  cute fluffy fledglings.

Because we had announced our arrival in Stirling for today's evening we drove as fast as possible to St. Andrews. Simone had discovered this little town by itself last winter and she wished to show us its pulchritude. So we had an expertly guide on our sightseeing tour. Although there was not enough time to visit the kings castle we visited the ruins of the cathedral and the giant old cemetery next to it. We strolled through narrow alleys and bought some small things. It is true that St. Andrews is a beautiful and pleasant town with a well known university even if we did not meet its contemporary most famous student Prince William.

And now, after two sunny weeks only interrupted by short showers, it began to rain heavily and continually on our last part of the travel back to Stirling.
