Some sketches from images that I took trotting around Aberdeen and the Shire.
I can't drive, and although my husband can, it scares him. So, I've been nagging him to take us around to see some more local sites.
This is the "Rhynie Man", a stone carving of a mysterious Pictish man, which was discovered in the middle of a farmer's field in the rural town of Rhynie in Aberdeenshire.
The carving is probably better than the man himself, but currently resides in Woodhill House, which is an Aberdeenshire Council building in Aberdeen.
This is Slain's Castle
