Slains Castle sits high up on the sea cliffs and is said to be the place which inspired Bram Stoker to write the classic novel Dracula. Whitby in England has the same claim, but no matter, it is a place where I walk often. It has stood as a ruin for many years, the inside is quite fascinating a bit like walking through history, a place where you can dream and relax.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
