Muir of Dinnet/Burn O' Vat

Saturday afternoon we headed out to an area called Dinnet, located about 45 minutes west of Aberdeen. There are two lochs (better known to us as lakes), Loch Kinord and Loch Davan, that are both leftovers from the last Ice Age. As the glaciers melted, two huge lumps of ice got stranded here; the lochs formed in the dents they left behind. We did a short walk along the edge of Loch Kinord; the main reason for this trip was to find a hidden Aberdeenshire treasure! Near the lochs is a granite cauldron known as the Burn O' Vat. Again, formed as the ice and glacier melted 14,000 years ago!

Take 3, I finally get a smile!

Such a peaceful place this Scotland is!

Oh and I forgot to mention that it was 65 degrees on Saturday and 70 degrees on Sunday! Sunday we managed to make it to the beach and driving range. I didn't get pictures on Sunday but a friend did so hopefully they'll be a post on that too!
