A New Hidden Gem Explored – Day 4 of #30DaysWild 2017

Day 4 of #30DaysWild was a bit of a random one. We had actually been in town all day and it wasn’t until we were driving home, that we took a turn down a road we often see but never go down.

Robin had been a bit grumpy in town today so it was a relief when he slept in the car on the way home. Sometimes if he is sleeping I like to drive a different route home to prolong his nap, this was one of those days. As we drove up a road driven many times David said “why don’t we go down this road for a change, I’ve always wondered what was there”. So we did.

Turns out this road took us to a hidden beautiful gem down by the River Don which we will definitely have to explore again in future. It is also an area where family friends used to live when I was a little girl so it was interesting to see which bits of the area I could remember!

St Fergus’ Chapel and The Symbol Stones

The ruined St Fergus’ Chapel houses the Dyce Symbol Stones. These sculptured stones are Pictish and Early Medieval and are over 1,100 years old.

Caught in the Rain

Our walk around was cut short as the heavens opened and the massive raindrops fell on us. Poor Robin got a little wet as Daddy ran back to the car with him. His first time being caught out in the rain!
