Are you curious about Aberdeen? Looking for an unusual and quirky activity which gets you out in the fresh air whatever the weather? Take one of our self-guided walks with a treasure hunt theme – looping around the better-known sights, as well as some of the more unusual and quirky ones, which combined make Aberdeen a fascinating place to explore!

You’ll get everything – detailed directions, maps, clues (with answers in the back!), and interesting snippets about the history of Aberdeen and the people that have shaped it.

Buy in booklet or instant download format (to use on your mobile device or to print at home) from and explore in your own time. One booklet is enough for four people of all ages to enjoy.

Two walks are included in the booklet, the 2nd starts where the first finishes.

Walk 1: Marischal College to the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting - 1.25 miles / 2kms

Starting outside Marischal College, one of the world’s largest and most splendid granite buildings, this walk winds its way past amazing architecture, a haunted museum, an episcopal cathedral, an ancient market cross, and a bustling harbour. Onward through the Merchant Quarter, past a marvellous maritime museum, round the vibrant Marischal Square before ending at the Kirk of St Nicholas Uniting, paradise in the centre of Aberdeen city.

Walk 2: The Kirl of St Nicholas Uniting Circular - 1 mile / 1.6 kms

See more of mystical Aberdeen, from the Kirk of St Nicholas past the ancient College of Robert Gordon, down streets with quirky shops, and past the site of Carmelite Friars. Pass through a tunnel before opening out onto St Nicholas Square with its variety of shops. Finally, climb upwards to a fabulous roof garden, before finishing your journey back at the Kirk and its lovely, peaceful churchyard.
