Aberdeen has some dark stories. Take a walk through three centuries and experience a host of spine tingling stories as we visit the actual sites of these terrible events!

Take a walk through the dark side of Aberdeen's history on this trip back through the centuries where we'll discover the murkier corners of Aberdeen's past. Starting at the old market centre of town, the Mercat Cross, we journey towards the harbour to find out about Aberdeen's maritime associations and how it was once the powerhouse port of Scotland. Learn about the city's connection with the oil industry, have a look at some of its oldest buildings and hear tales of slavery, piracy and the seedier characters of Aberdeen's colourful and often troublesome past. Hit the cobblestones with me and let's unearth some of the stories hidden in the granite city.
