Exploring Shincliffe …
A long walk this morning took us through Shincliffe. This tiny village close to Durham has been designated as a conservation area, and it’s easy to see why … 😊

Walk (062) Aden Country Park Circuit (Aberdeenshire)
A gentle stroll around the periphery of Aden Country Park which occupies 230 acres of mixed woodland and parkland near Mintlaw. The Park is home to the Aberdeenshire Farming Museum, a ruined country house, numerous forest walks, a large pond, and a meandering section of the South Ugie Water … what’s not to like β€¦Β πŸ˜ƒ

Walk (061) Pittenweem-St Monans-Abercrombie Circular (Fife)
This walk offers a stimulating contrast between the historic and attractive coastline of the East Neuk of Fife, and the fertile rolling farmland that lies behind the coast. Pittenweem and St Monans are classic East Neuk seaside villages, with a patchwork of warmly coloured pantile roofs and crow-step gables tumbling down to pretty harbours β€¦Β πŸ˜ƒ

Blue to Grey Spectrum …
