Aberdeen

Aberdeen has got the best of both worlds, being a city by the sea, with the Cairngorm Mountains providing a rural twist to this urban paradise. The main thoroughfare of Union Street, also known as ‘Granite’ Mile’ owing to its abundance of grey faced buildings stretching the mile from the Castlegate to Holburn Junction, leads to Union Square shopping and leisure complex, and the Trinity Centre, offering a wide variety of shopping and eating experiences to suit every taste and budget.

Ships dock up right to the city-centre streets and golden sands stretch for miles. Old Aberdeen is home to Aberdeen’s first University dating back to 1495, and the 15th century cathedral, and the fishing quarter of Footdee – known locally as Fittie - with its tiny cottages and brightly painted buildings is a sight to behold.
