Balmoral Castle

I have had the best four days. I can’t even begin to describe how fantastic it has been. Friday was Dunnottar Castle, Saturday was a cycle ride to Newton Dee & Shakespeare at Drum Castle in the evening, Sunday we went to the Moscow State Circus, and today we visited Balmoral Castle. My sister has been here the entire time and on Sunday evening my aunt and uncle joined us. Sadly it all comes to an end today. Here are our pics from Balmoral Castle.

This is the River Dee as you walk over the bridge to Balmoral.

I told the kids to do a silly pose in this next one.

The kitchen garden at Balmoral Castle is amazeballs.

We even got to see a red squirrel!

On the way back we stopped in Ballater and I was happy to see the train station has been rebuilt after it was destroyed by a fire a couple of years ago.

My sister made a phone call 🙂

We didn’t see the Queen but apparently she’s there. She arrived last Thursday.
