Another Day, Another Castle


Photoshoot: Kildrummy Castle

I only updated my About page recently but I regularly use Peek User Testing to get feedback on my blog and it’s always really useful.

What I took from the latest feedback was I needed to develop the intro video – so I did!

In my mind I wanted it to be like one of the sketches from The Fast Show…

In reality, once we got to the first location I decided just to do it all from there and Greg was pretty rubbish at walking backwards and filming at the same time.

The location was Kildrummy Castle which is only 10 minutes drive from my house. Seriously – there’s castles everywhere around here!

Greg was my “film crew” and did a good job without complaining too much – the results were quite shaky and I kept in some outtakes. I like to keep it real or something like that. Take a look and see what you think and then I’ll share some photos of the adventure…

If you are wondering what that little room is that I jumped out of – it was actually the prison latrine…


I hadn’t even touched a drop of wine but while I was up on one of the prison walls I decided it would be a good idea to strike a number of poses…

Who knew that being in prison could be so much fun?


Of course I had to take a photo of the photographer and the obligatory selfie from my jailhouse tower…

Joking aside, the castle grounds were amazing and the fact that we were the only ones there made it all the better…

What about you? What have you been up to? Let me know in the comments below or tweet me @SteveSays2014

    1. Like I said it didn’t turn out exactly how I imagined but yeah it was fun and I am very pleased with the result. Also realised I need a haircut or failing that a solution to my ever thinning hair lol

  1. The castle does look amazing and as I said, love the outtakes. Poor Greg – our other halves always suffer for our art! I hope you poured him a nice glass of wine and didn’t just bugger off to do your editing 😉


That's what I thought, tell me what you think...
