I altered my itinerary so that I could meet my dad in Aberdeen, Scotland. He got called there last minute for a job, so I thought it would be a nice detour. My favorite part of the trip was our visit to Dunnottar Castle, an island fortress near Stonehaven.
Visiting castles is always a hundred times more interesting when I am with my dad. He is an engineer, so we see things in completely different ways. His intense curiosity is not only amusing, it helps me truly appreciate the incredible history behind these ruins. We had an absolute blast.
