Located by the sea with the Cairngorm Mountains offering a rural twist, Aberdeen has got the best of both worlds.
This is a city where ships dock up right to the city-centre streets and golden sands stretch for miles.
Take a harbour cruise and see the Dolphins and Seals up close, there’s also beautiful parks, gardens and nature reserves that are great for bird watching.
A shoppers paradise, the city’s Union Square is bursting full of shops and also has multiple restaurants and a cinema. There’s also five shopping centres, boutiques and independent retailers for you to browse.
Aberdeen is home to two old towns: Old Aberdeen, a hidden gem with incredible architecture and where the city’s first University was founded, and Footdee an old fishing village with tiny cottages and brightly painted buildings.
