Aberdeen Arts & Culture
Want to see how it got its nickname ‘City of Granite’? Marischal College on Broad Street is thought to be one of the two largest granite buildings in the world. It’s impressive gothic design is the result of a combination of different ways of working with the hardy stone. On clear days the granite sparkles in the sunshine.
Nearby Aberdeen Art Gallery houses one of the most impressive collections of art in the UK. Inside this impressive 19th century building you will find a selection of paintings, sculpture and artefacts dating from the 15th Century to the present day. Highlights include work by the Scottish Colourists.
