A few unplanned aerial pictures of the River Dee between the Duthie Park and Garthdee on a glorious sunny day.


I have done this area before when I stayed in the city centre but haven't been here for a long time, its better than I remember. With the blue skies, greener than green grass and the colour of the river makes a good mix.

Aerial Pictures of the Banff registered Sovereign BF380 which ran aground off the coast of Inverallochy near Fraserburgh during a stormy night back on 18th December 2005. At the time of the accident there were 5 crew members on-board who all were saved and rescued by a sea king helicopter from RAF Lossiemouth.

New Pictures - Menie House, Trumps Golf Course

Sunday 8th June 2014

Sundays weather couldn't go to waste so nipped in by Mr Trumps International Links Golf Course for some pictures but decided only to go as far as the Menie House building, I thought it would be unfare for golfers to pay upto £190 per round only to listen and be distracted by a small heli-cam. I am hoping to get permission to do video and Pictures in the near future but am not holding my breath.

Here's some aerial pictures of the Aberdeen Football Club stadium sited at Pittodrie near Aberdeen's city centre. Home to the club since 1903 with a total capacity of 21,421 it is made up of four stands - Richard Donald (Dick Donald), Main Stand, Merkland Road (Family Stand) and finally the South Stand where also the away supporters sit.

There are plans for a new stadium to be build out beside the Cove area of the city but nothing has been set in stone, the plan for Pittodrie? Well as Stewart Milne is a major shareholder and club chairman we can all guess whats going to be built........just in case you don't here's a hint - Flats.
