This is a city right on the north east coast. It's a place where the harbour meets the city centre, where you may just see the harbour's resident pod of dolphins playing in the waters or enjoy a beach stroll alongside some serious shopping. It's a city where you can easily surf or take in a theatre performance in the same day. Aberdeen is famous for its stunning, sparkling, granite buildings and monuments which shimmer in the sunlight and the warming tones of 'Doric', the local Scots dialect you'll hear in the streets.
The majority of Scotland is now under a temporary lockdown, though some island communities are under level 3 restrictions. Anyone living under lockdown, Level 3 or 4 restrictions must not travel outside their local area, except for essential purposes.
If you’re thinking about taking a day trip or overnight stay in the future, please plan ahead carefully with the Good to Go scheme, where they have a Covid-19 risk assessment. You can find out more about the current Covid-19 restrictions.
