13 August 2019: Day 3 of our Grand Tour of Scotland: Part 8

Good day everyone

Hope you are all still healthy and staying safe.

Let’s continue on our drive through Scotland. Our next stop was Ruby bay. I heard that this beautiful bay won the Keep Scotland Beautiful Beach Award in 2018.

When we stopped in the parking lot I saw the beautiful beach and can understand why they won. It is truly beautiful.

The wind was cold and dad decided to rather stay in the car while I went to capture all Ruby bay has to offer.

My first stop was the Lady Tower. The wind was freezing cold but after a while walking I got nice and warm. The views leading up to the Lady Tower was beautiful.

Before I could go into the Lady Tower I had to wait for a couple deeply in love to finish up their “photo shoot” There was water inside the tower and I had to be careful not to step into the water.

From the Lady Tower I headed towards the Elie Ness lighthouse. The path was slippery and I nearly landed with my face in the mud.

After walking around the Lighthouse I headed back to the car.

Our next stop was a quick one we headed to the Ruins of the once beautiful Newark Castle. Due to limited time I did not go and explore.

Well it was getting late and we still had 2 stops before we could call it a day and we still had to stop for supper. Up next we will be visiting St Monans.

Thank you for joining us on our Grand Tour of Scotland.

Till next time. Stay safe….
