The vibrant country of Scotland is bursting with confidence, wealth and a very modern outlook. Scotland’s third largest city, Aberdeen, is Scotland’s ‘engine room’ and with an endless list of activities, things to see and fantastic places to stay you won’t return home disappointed.
North Sea oil & gas reserves have transformed Aberdeen into one of the UK’s fastest growing cities and most desirable places to live. That’s not to mention its rich history, world class golf and proximity to the Cairngorms National Park. With a thriving student population and new music venues to keep the atmosphere lively, Aberdeen is the perfect place to book a city break.
Shopping in Aberdeen
Aberdeen has many fine shopping facilities where visitors can spend a little or a lot. Large shopping centres like Union Square, Trinity Centre and Bon-Accord will satisfy those looking for designer brands. Travel to Rosemount, just north west of the city centre, to find smaller independent boutiques.
Long before the oil industry came to town the city was a world renowned fishing centre. Sample the catch of the day and dine on langoustines, oysters or just good old fish & chips in one of the city’s top restaurants. Buy direct at Aberdeen Country Fair on the last Saturday of every month!
