Aberdeen, the North Eastern powerhouse of Scotland, is a city of contrasts. Famous for its granite buildings, this elegant and refined ‘Silver City’ is surrounded by wild, natural beauty. Fuelled by industry and oil, the city now rivals Edinburgh in terms of expense, matching its southern counterpart with a rich cultural heritage, fine dining and vibrant nightlife.
Take a relaxing stroll through Duthie Park, catch a critically-acclaimed play at His Majesty’s Theatre or enjoy fantastic shopping at the Union Square Shopping Centre. Further afield, the Cairngorms National Park offers dramatic landscapes, deep glens and picturesque waterfalls. World-famous attractions such as Balmoral Castle and Glenfiddich Whisky distillery are also just a scenic drive away. For those looking for a more sedate adventure, why not get in a round at the UK’s highest golf course, Braemar.
Situated on a breath-taking coastline of rugged cliffs, the glittering 'Granite City' of Aberdeen offers an unforgettable weekend break.
