Aberdeen - a hidden gem! Scotland's third largest city, only two hours from the Central Belt, offers history and architecture the more discerning visitor will be amazed at.
With a population of 200000, swelled by our students during term time, it has a traditional fishing and farming base but is now also recognised as the capital of Europe’s offshore oil industry. Our granite buildings display the produce from the historic, local quarry, providing the city and, indeed, many well-known buildings throughout Britain and the world, with this beautiful stone. One iconic building, now housing our Local Council, Marischal College, is a 'must see' - showing all the beauty of the stone and the wonder of the craftsmen that carved this beauty back in an age before modern tooling came into being! Aberdeen University, founded in 1495, together with Robert Gordon's University (1992) make this a popular Centre for education for many domestic and international students studying for their degrees for their future. Come and join us as we take you through this wonderful history and architecture that is Aberdeen.
