Aberdeen, with its architecture and ancient charm, is our nautical north easterly gem. The city is situated right on the north east coast, some 120 miles north of Edinburgh, with the coastal countryside of Aberdeenshire surrounding it. It's the ideal spot for a couple of days away.
This itinerary is made up suggestions from Alex Robertson, Museum Manager at Aberdeen Art Gallery and Museums. Every day is different for Alex and the team, who had the joy of overseeing the restoration and redevelopment of the gallery and building in 2019. Find out more about Alex below - get an insight into daily life at the museum, his adventures in Scotland and what's he's looking forward to most.
Check directly with the businesses before visiting on their reopening date, and look out for the Good to Go scheme logo, which shows which businesses have carried out a Covid-19 risk assessment.
