Cruden Bay, , UK
Slains Castle is found on the rocky Aberdeen coastline near the town of Cruden Bay. You can walk there if you grow bored lazing on the golden sandy beach!
This atmospheric ruined castle was originally built to replace Old Slains Castle, situated about six miles south-west of the present site, after it was destroyed in 1594. New Slains Castle was erected in 1597 on the site of the former Bowness Castle.
There is also a good 18 hole golf course nearby and the town provides facilities like parking, cafés, toilets and shops.
