Visiting from Adelaide to Aberdeen

Aberdeen river against mountains

Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland, situated in the Grampian region and surrounded by beautiful countryside and a stunningly dramatic coastline. Famous for its oil industry, Aberdeen is often referred to as the Granite City due to much of the architecture being built with granite from the local quarry. Explore the Dunnottar Castle and the city’s eclectic arts scene or sample craft beer and Scottish whisky in one of the vibrant pubs. Enjoy the outdoors with hiking, surfing or kayaking or visit outdoor attractions like the nearby Cairngorms National Park, Foot-dee Fishing Village, the Royal Deeside region or one of the many sandy beaches.
