My Saturday Drive
Exploring beautiful Scotland!
Aerial Apologies for the radio silence yesterday. I spent the whole day running errands and then did a full detail on the @mysaturdaydrive mobile which took about 6h.. I hope you all spend the weekend in more relaxing ways than I did haha! Let me know what you've been up to down below! Otherwise, please enjoy this lovely photo from Erskine Bridge. What do you think: did I shoot it with a drone or from the bridge? For more Scotland photography and travel blogs, please visit mysaturdaydrive.com or click the link in bio.

Erskine Bridge I said it before, and I'll say it again. It's amazing how quickly you can drive out of Glasgow and have some amazing views! I love Scotland so much! This was shot Erskine Bridge, just outside Glasgow, looking down at a house on the bank of the Clyde. Who needs a drone eh? Leave a comment if you like it! How far away do you have to go to escape the concrete jungle? Let's chat down belo!

Edinburgh One last look at the capital to conclude this little series of photos I took when we went up Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh. I hope that you've enjoyed them just as much as we enjoyed going up and down the little hill! If you did, I would love it if you could drop a comment! I always appreciate every single one of them and enjoy interacting with you!

Gorse Haven't featured this deliciosly coloured wild bush for a while, so there you have it! If you get swarm by wasps while double tapping the hell out of this image I do apologise. BEE (ha!) aware though, that August is the month the common wasp is relieved of duty from the queen and as they are preparing to die, they get extremely hungry and are likely to come buzz around if you have lively colours on or have some sort of sugary food or drink. Best thing to do is to stay calm and not swat it away. Swating it will stress it out and it will call for more wasps to attack! Leave a comment down below if you enjoyed the photo!

Miniature Look at the tiny hikers!! Got a bit creative with the camera on Arthur's Seat. Let me know what you think down below! Oh, I also put a nice panorama of Edinburgh from Arthur's Seat in my Photography section on my website. Go check it out, link in bio!

Up with the birds At the very top, Arthur's seat is 251 meters, or 822 feet for my non metric friends. This is high enough to be up with the birds! Here's a wee snapshot of a seagull circling us, probably looking for people picnic-ig to pick on! Edinburgh is looking mighty fine from above, don't you think? Leave a comment if you'd like!

Edinburgh, Arthur's Seat Jeremy thanks you all for the lovely comments from yesterday! Although they can be quite the pest in certain neighbourhoods, Jeremy is a well behaved lad! This next little series is from Arthur's Seat, Edinburgh. We climbed it 2 months ago, when the weather was still being good to us! Anyways, it was a nice little hike with some amazing views of our beloved capital, Edinburgh! Have you climbed it? What do you think? let me know in the comments!

Squirrel Thought I'd break up the series of photos with something cheeky! Here's Jeremy, my neighbour squirrel haha! Every time I look out the window and see him all I need to do is wave and he will come right to me (probably thinking I have food). I was lucky enough this time that he went up on a flower pot and posed! Let me know if you like Jeremy in the comments below! If you don't like him at least tell me what you've been up to this weekend! For more Scotland photography and travel blogs, please visit the link in bio or head over to mysaturdaydrive.com.

Stonehaven Close to Dunnottar Castle lies the fishing village of Stonehaven, one of the many charming fishing establishments on the east coast of Scotland! If you are planning on visiting Dunnottar Castle, I highly recommend going down to the harbour in Stonehaven and have a chippy! As some of you have mentioned there are also Gurdon or Bervje to check out just a few minutes down south from the castle! From my understanding, Stonehaven dates back as far as the Iron Age! Small Scottish villages have quite a charm, don't you think? Leave a comment! For something even more charming, check out mysaturdaydrive.com or click the link in bio for the latest article!

Dunnottar beach Still on Dunnottar Castle beach, we found these lovely wild flowers, offering a splash of colour on what normally would be a grey moody atmosphere of the Scottish coast.

Romance Still at Dunnottar Castle, before or after you visit, take some time to go to the little beach behind the castle! On a rainy day like this, it looks moody as hell and can make for some cool candid shots of random tourists haha! I swear, I could sit there and listen to the waves all day! Wouldn't you?

Dunnottar Castle, worm's eye view! Looking towards the chapel, I spotted this nice little view through the flowers. It was raining while we were visiting, but it meant the colours were rich and it made everything feel very atmoshperic. After it rains, there are still very tiny molecules of water in the air. When light passes through them, they act as prisms and make colours pop! There is no such thing as too bad a weather for photography! What do you think? Leave a comment as it's always appreciated!

Dunnottar Castle, looking out the window! Here's a wee shot of some of the views you get looking out of one of the windows of Dunnottar Castle, north, towards Dunnicaer Sea Stack. So I guess while being under the many sieges throughout the centuries, while trying to stay alive at least you had a good view...🤷♂️😅 What do you think? Is your view out the window better?

Dunnottar Castle Here's a wee look inside Dunnottar Castle. It seems that although it's human inhabitants have long been gone, life still finds a way in, in the shape of moss. Here's another fun fact: although it was subject to many, many attacks throughout the centuries, Dunnottar has plenty of history, but the thing that stands out the most is that it was here that the Honours of Scotland were hidden from Cromwell's invading army in the 17th century. Scotland is just full of amazing history, don't you agree? Many thanks for checking my post out.
