What to do in late nov

by Resmixen

Hi :-)
We will visit Aberdeen for 2 nights, arriving 20th on nov and leaving 22th nov.

Any "must do" that you recommend?
We like good food, music, beer, whiskey, art, everything!

We are not teenagers ;-) ! (38 and male)

We will stay at Aberdeen Central Hotel.

The Art Gallery has a reasonable collection. Also the Maritime Museum is well-worth a visit.

Drummond's on Belmont Street has live music most nights. Food... so many good places to eat, depends what you like, but I rate 2 places on The Green (Market Square down behind Union Street)- Bistro Verde and Cafe 52 as having some of the best non-"ethnic" food around and Kama Sutra on Crown St as the best Indian, although these 3 are all quite pricey.

Estaminet is a pretty good bar, but popular with students, although not noisy and annoying there.

Otherwise, on Golden Square/Silver Street to the North side of Union Street has a couple of good bars- Melting Pot on the square itself, Under the Hammer in a basement just up Silver St (maybe my favourite) and The Glove, just next door, where also there is often music.

Enjoy it, I like this place. Jem

Thanks a lot for your answers! :-)

I have tried to figure out (useing the Internet of course) how to get into Aberdeen from the Aiport on a saturday.
I am not sure how often the buses go, so if some of`guys can help me? I am arriving 09:20 on saturday.

And another question. Sunday....what to do? A destillery that is open for visitors on a sunday and easy to reach via bus/train?
Or anything else you recommend us to do...?

Thanks again and maybe, see you soon in Aberdeen! :-)

Hi again,

not sure, having not had a look through it, but try this website for the buses fromthe airport- I think they are regular, maybe 1 and hour, but maybe more...

http://www.firstgroup.com/ukbus/scotland/nescot/home/

Not so sure about distilleris, but looking at the tourist info office guide, they are mostly not open on saturdays, just mon-fri. Theonly one I can see to be opne on sats in Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery in Forres.

Maybe you can find more info at-

Hope you have a great trip, it's a good city, Jem

Travel Tips for Aberdeen

The Broken Fiddle

by stevezero

The Borken Fiddle is a tale of a latter day Robin Hood, played out around Baff, of a vagabond called MacPherson.
MacPherson was convicted of being "repute an Egyptian and Vagabond, and oppressor of his majesty's free lieges, in a bangstree manner, and going up and down the country around and keeping markets in a hostile manner." Only eight days intervened between the dates of his trial and execution, and the magistrates, tradition asserts, hurried the hanging early in the morning, so that the condemned man suffered several hours before the specified time, the motive of this indecent haste being a desire to defeat a reprieve which they knew or suspected to be on the way. When brought to the place of execution, on the Gallows Hill of Banff (16th November), the bold outlaw played on his violin the stirring tune he had so recently composed in the condemned cell, and then asked if any friend was present who would accept the instrument as a gift at his hand. No one coming forward, he indignantly broke the violin on his knee, and threw away the fragments, after which he submitted to his fate. The traditionary accounts of MacPherson's immense prowess are justified by his sword, which is still preserved in Duff House, at Banff, and is an implement of great length and weight - as well as by his bones, which were found not very many years ago, and were allowed by all who saw them to be much stronger than the bones of ordinary men. He was assuredly no ordinary man that could so disport himself on the morning of his execution. Death, we presume, has rarely been faced with such perfect contempt. Sir Walter Scott says that he offered the violin to any of his clan who would undertake to play the tune over his body at his lykewake, and none answering, he dashed it to pieces on the executioner's head, and flung himself from the ladder.

Crathes Castle

by foxie

Just outside of Aberdeen to the north, one will find one of the youngest of Scotland's Castles: Crathes.

It sports amazing gardens as well as an impeccably upkept interior. The original family owned, operated and living in the castle until the late 1980s, so there are many of the old family relics still there including some amazing woodworking specimens, ceiling paintings, and other furnishings.

You can easily get to and fro by bus from the Aberdeen Bus Terminal. There is a bus stop immediately outside the castle grounds, both to pick up and drop off. Look out though, as the busses run a reduced schedule on Sundays.

Dunnotar castle...

by TracyG

Dunnotar castle near to Stonehaven is a nice way to spend a while. Also Stonehaven itself has some stunning coastline and cliff walks, it is is worth spending a couple of hours here also. (See the Dunnotar Castle Travelogue for more photos)

Seaton Park

by foxie

Beautiful gardens that in mid-summer have the most amazing rose display of almost any I've ever seen. It wraps behind the University Dormitories and through the water shed that is nothing short of picturesque.

You can usually find the locals playing football, and children (of all ages) are sure to love the well maintained playground equiptment.

Seaton, however, is best viewed during the daylight hours, as the grounds (especially near the river) are reputed to be unsafe after dark.

The top of the Park is crowned by St. Machar's Cathedral, another place to make sure to visit.
