Set against some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery, Aberdeen is the main urban hotspot for travellers visiting the North East of Scotland. The area has long been associated with maritime endeavour and a North Sea oil boom in the latter half of the 20th century has given the city a real spring to its step. Aberdeen has much to offer, including an array of superb hotels within easy reach of some stunning landmarks.
Discover Aberdeen’s rich heritage with a visit to one of the city’s impressive museums, shop till you drop in the vibrant Union Street area or take to the hills in the Cairngorms National Park, only a short drive or train-ride away. Scotland is famous for its hospitality as well as top cuisine and Aberdeen is a fine example of this. It’s surf and turf all the way here with Aberdeen Angus Beef and fresh local seafood on local menus throughout the region.
Eating out across this excellent area is a must for travellers. The Aberdeenshire coast is world famous for its quality seafood including fabulous shellfish. The area also boasts fine trout and salmon – you can even go fishing yourself, provided you organise the correct permit. For a British classic, fish & chips, head to the Stonehaven area.
