Trains to Aberdeen

When you pull into the gateway to the Highlands, it's tempting to sneak off for a wee dram the minute your feet hit the concourse. But the UK's oil and deep sea fishing centre has loads more to offer – and not just the freshest fish and chips you've ever had. The nearby Union Square development is a good start. Opened in 2009, this shopping and entertainment complex was built on an abandoned railway yard, and cleverly integrates the sandstone structure of the original 1867 station into its main plaza. Aberdeen's current station was originally known as Aberdeen Joint station – built during the First World War, it unified all the lines serving the city. Today it's a bustling terminus that is served by trains from all over the country, including the Highland Sleeper route from Euston. The approach to the station is famously scenic, with dramatic sea views on the final leg from Stonehaven.

Station details & facilities

Aberdeen station has two entrances. The College Street entrance is adjacent to the car park and connected to the concourse by a bridge and lifts. The Union Square entrance brings you directly onto the concourse. Platforms 1-6 are accessible from the main concourse, and platform 7 via the bridge and lifts. Platforms 6 and 7 are double-length, with their north and south ends denoted by 6S, 6N, 7S and 7N. Platforms 1-2 are not currently in use.
