P&J Live, Aberdeen

© VisitAberdeenshire / Damian Shields


The city of Aberdeen sits on the north east coast of Scotland. 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. 

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.
