Here we are at the start of our quest to find castles in the snow… we pass through the gates to Fyvie Castle where it’s more icy than snowy and we’re getting down and frosty with it!
Great shadows reach towards the castle, but we’re backing away, we’re leaving… seeking more of those castles in the snow…
We’re travelling across country like Ice Road Truckers… to Delgatie!
It’s bright and properly snowy here. Let’s walk in the woods.
And circle back round to the castle.
Say hello to the unicorns!
On to a stormier day and a dark ruin: Huntly.
Look at the old chimneys…
And the slopes and trees…
Finally, it’s time to snuggle up at home with hot chocolate in a mermaid mug!

Set in a fictional castle in Aberdeenshire, Ailish Sinclair’s debut novel, THE MERMAID AND THE BEAR, blends an often overlooked period of history, the Scottish witchcraft accusations, in particular the 1597 Aberdeen witchcraft panic, with a love story.
