Experience Aberdeen, the Granite City

Aberdeen’s rich history began as two separate towns on the North Sea. Along the Don River were Old Aberdeen and the cathedral and university; New Aberdeen, on the Dee River, was the hub for trading and the fishing village. Today, Aberdeen is Britain’s largest granite-exporting industry and the chief seaport of northern Scotland.

Stop in at Aberdeen Maritime Museum on Shiprow, overlooking the busy harbor. Learn about the city’s legendary relationship with the sea through collections spanning shipbuilding, fast sailing ships, fishing, and port history. The museum is the UK’s sole location with displays on the North Sea’s gas and oil industry. Catch more seafaring history at Fooddee (pronounced “FIT-ee” locally), an old fishing village straight from a postcard. You may see dolphins leaping up at the harbor mouth!

Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire make up part of Scotland’s castle country, as in more than 300 castles. Listen to the sound of the traditional Scots language, a local Doric, while you’re drinking up the atmosphere here. Play a round of golf at Royal Aberdeen Golf Club, founded in 1780, while you take in North Sea coastal views. Enjoy the rugged cliffs and sandy bays at St. Cyrus National Nature Reserve, or explore mountains, lochs, wildlife, and distilleries at Cairngorms National Park.

History and architecture

Get to know a bit of Aberdeen history beginning with St. Machar’s Cathedral, (1424) and Provost Skene’s House (c. 1545). Visit the Union Street parish church of St. Nicholas, divided into two parts: the West Church (built in 1755) is separate from the East Church (built in 1838), divided by the original 13th-century transept and 19th-century steeple. Compare two medieval bridges, the Brig o’ Balgownie (1320), which spans the Don, and the Old Bridge of Dee (1527). You’ll notice a mix of styles, from the Neoclassical-style Music Hall (1822) to Broad Street’s Marischal College (1844), the latter said to be the largest granite building in the world. Founded in 1845, King’s College, now the University of Aberdeen and home of five Nobel Laureates, is known for its famous crown spire and Renaissance style.

Fun fact: Yes, the jaw-dropping architecture is gray granite and there’s a lot of it. Look closely and you’ll see the buildings take on a silver sparkle in sunlight due to their high mica content.
