Crovie car park to Gardenstown

Date walked: 03/07/2020

Time taken: 0.5 hour

Distance: 1.6km

Ascent: 35m



Had intended just to get up early to get some sunrise photos (if conditions permitted). Was a wee bit late for that but did manage a bonus short walk/jog before the rain started.

Image
Stopped off at Banff for (just past) the sunrise.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
As a first shower arrives I get back in the car and decide to head for the Crovie car park.

Image

Image

Image
Just south of Gardenstown.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
The road to Crovie and to the car park on the cliff top.

Image

Image

Image

Image
View of Crovie Head and Crovie from car park.

Image

Image
Someone has sensibly cut a gap in the fence so that you can avoid the previously precarious pole dance around the end (though non-lazy people were still able to loop round to the proper start.

Image
The way ahead.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
More Head to the west.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
St John's Church overlooking Gamrie Bay.

Image
Gardenstown (striclty speaking Seatown I suppose)..

Image

Image
Two thirds of the way back to the car I made friend or they were possibly warning me off. I think this is a stonechat but whoever a pleasure to see.

Image
If this is a stonechat then what surprised me was the tweets in between the chats but YouTube tells me this is the normal stonechat song.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image
Off to a new roost.

Image
Not five feet away from me now.

Image
Back onto the bushes.

Image

Image

Image
And back onto the fence.
