In the north-east we’re spoiled for things to do and places to visit.
And one spot which has been receiving a lot of attention on social media recently is Needles Eye Rock at Tarlair, Macduff, in Aberdeenshire.
The natural rock formation leads to a large cave known as The Devil’s Dining Room which was historically said to be used by smugglers to land their contraband without being seen.
It is said to be possible to enter the cave when the tide is fully out, however, those visiting are advised to keep a close eye on the changing tide to ensure they experience the space safely.
