#BONIESCOTLANDCASTLES  Mary and I went to meat the gardener here . We have known her for years and what a great worker she is. This  place is called Fasque House and here is a bit about it:=
Fasque was the property of the Ramsays of Balmain, and the present house was completed around 1809, replacing an earlier house. It was purchased in 1829 by Sir John Gladstone, 1st Baronet, father of William Ewart Gladstone, later Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who often stayed there. Fasque was a family home of the Gladstones until the 1930s, and was open to the public during the last quarter of the 20th century. In 2010 Fasque House was bought by Fasque House Properties Ltd and restoration work was begun. Have a lovely weekend and enjoy yourselves.

#SCOTLANDCASTLES  This beautiful Castle is 6 miles from our house. This is one is used for Parties and Weddings and golfers fishermen. What ever you need this great couple will help you out. "Kincardine Castle outside Aberdeen, Scotland, one of the best places you'll ever stay, run by one of the most enjoyable couples you'll ever encounter" Darin Bunch, Golfgetaways. 2016.A magnificent exclusive-use castle for accommodation, meetings, hospitality, private dining and house parties.  Minimum group size is 6 people. 16 guest bedrooms each with its own bathroom. Not like a fine hotel but more akin to staying with friends in a grand country house. Superb. 
One of Scotland's finest Victorian Castles in 3,000 acres overlooking spectacular Royal Deeside in Aberdeenshire.  Aberdeen 35 mins.

#BONNIESCOTLANDLANDSCAPES   The mountain with the large stone on top is about 10 miles from our house but can be seen for miles around. The name of it is "Clachnaben" and this is what it  stands for.:=
The name Clachnaben comes from Clach na Beinne or the stone of the hill. Along with Bennachie it is one of the most familiar hills in NE Scotland. The tor is known to some locally as the devil’s bite. Legend has it that the devil took a bite out of the hillside one night as he flew back from visiting the more Godless people in the south, but the land proved to be too sour even for his taste and he spat it out. Another version has it that he threw the rock at his wife during a furious argument, thereby burying her under the tor. Have a wonderful weekend our friends and enjoy yourselves.  Best Viewed Full-Screen: Click on the image and hit the space bar

#SUNSETBEFORETHESTORM   We were watching the weather forecast about Storm Henry  that was about to hit us as the wind was already bad. This was around 18hours GMT (6 o'clock) when the sky went as if it was going to pour down and this was the result. Within a minute the sky changed into this. Have a wonderful day our friends, Take care.
