Culture and heritage abound in Aberdeen.
Aberdeen is a city of big skies and sweeping seascapes, with the freshest air and the friendliest folk. An international energy hub, Aberdeen marries a rich cultural heritage with a contemporary outlook, a city known as much today for its vibrant arts scene, bustling shopping centres and award-winning attractions, as its striking granite architecture and historic maritime roots.
Recently ranked one of the UK's top ten cities in which to live and work, Aberdeen is set to get better still - the city and surrounding region of Aberdeenshire are enjoying a regional renaissance, with billions of pounds being spent, on everything from infrastructure to visitor attractions. Be sure to explore the city while you're here.
Aberdeen is the gateway to Aberdeenshire, a region famous for its award-winning castles, whisky distilleries and golf courses. Here you'll find Scotland in miniature - breathtaking scenery abounds, from the Banffshire Coast to the Cairngorms National Park.
Further north you'll find the Moray Coast, famous for dolphin-watching, and the stunning wilderness of the Highlands beyond. A journey south takes you into the Angus Glens and beautiful Perthshire.
It's all out there, just waiting to be explored!
