Visiting Aberdeen

Scotland’s ‘Granite City’ has striking granite buildings such as the Gothic Marischal College and the castellated Citadel at Castlegate that exemplify its famous export. Another export is oil, and you can find out about the history of the North Sea at Aberdeen Maritime Museum.

Some of Scotland’s finest shopping is here too, from designer fashions and local crafts in the West End to the high street brands in Union Street and the malls. And another popular attraction is the Aberdeen Art Gallery which features a fine portrait collection.

Tips: It can be windy so come prepared for bracing weather.
