Country Living (UK) - - A MONTH IN THE COUNTRY -

A short walk from the Aberdeen­shire vil­lage of Cru­den Bay, Slains Cas­tle over­looks the churn­ing North Sea. Wan­der around these sprawl­ing ru­ins – ex­plor­ing a maze of dark­ened pas­sage­ways – and you’ll soon see why many be­lieve the fortress inspired Bram Stoker’s Cas­tle Drac­ula. In­spect the tum­bling tur­rets and stone stair­ways – even on the bright­est of May days, there’s still a slight chill in the air.
