Aberdeen

Scotland

Located North-East of Scotland, Aberdeen is a city many may consider overlooked or underestimated. Grey in architecture but busy in nature, Aberdeen isn't short of things to do or see. Original home to the self-seal envelope, it comes to no surprise that Aberdeen was one of the places with one of Britain's oldest businesses - a place packed full of innovators.  Its North Sea oil, further proof of innovation means wealth is prevalent in this city and that is evident in its golfing obsession (over 70 golf courses in Aberdeenshire alone).

When we say you'll be busy, we mean you'll be busy. Not only does Aberdeen have an award winning beach which is right near its city centre, it too is home to 17 Whiskey Distilleries, all of which you can visit. If you're not up for the boozy path and want a more cultural journey, Aberdeen provides that too. Visit Scotland's oldest bridge 'Brig O'Balgownie' or head to The Tolbooth which used to be a prison in the 17th Century. If you're looking for something a little more aestetically pleasing then make your way a little West out of Aberdeen to either or both Craigievar Castle or Balmoral Castle - the architecture and scenic views will have you in awe.

Dotted with bars, pubs, fancy hotels and cute independent cafes, Aberdeen is the places where generations come together and different social backgrounds harmonise forever.
