Slains Castle Scotland

Slains Castle Scotland  Cruden Bay, United Kingdom Slains Castle is a large imposing ruin fronting directly onto south facing cliffs about a kilometer east of Cruden Bay. You can walk to it from the village itself, or from the slightly nearer car park at a bend on the A975 at Grid Reference 103369.At some point the images on this page could become of historical interest only because in November 2004 Aberdeenshire Council gave outline consent for the restoration of Slains Castle and its conversion into 35 holiday apartments. Various complications remained, but in September 2006 the Council decided in favour of the development. It was reported in October 2007 that Slains Castle had been fenced off prior to work beginning. The remainder of this page refers to the position prior to that happening.Whichever approach you pick, you will find yourself completely unaided by any signposts. We suspect this is because no one wants to be held responsible if you fall over the cliffs that lie immediately in front of the ruins, or if part of the building falls on you. In that same spirit we should emphasise that Slains Castle could easily be a dangerous place: and if you do go, take great care. www.undiscoveredscotland.co.uk Flight using the DJI Phantom Vision 2 Plus over Slain's Castle ruins near Cruden Bay, Aberdeenshire.
