Clean,crisp and clear.
Saunter along the golden sanded beach as the sun rises. It can be cold, but the blinding clarity of light ensures your still alive. A proud city breeds proud people. Aberdonians are just that, opinionated, self assured and provincial. All the qualities of distinction that set it apart from the rest of Scottish cities.
Strathdon - in the middle of nowhere...
If you want to get a glimpse of rugged, remote scenery away from the West Coast, head for Strathdon, where the most famous venue is the Strathdon Highland Games (which several British celebs regularly attend)!
Drive out of the town of Strathdon & head for Corgarff & Kildrummy Castles. Both remote and couldn't be more different.
Lots of heather, cold wind even in August & complete silence for miles!!
The Church thats now a CluB
The Soul is my first coolest club I `ve ever been to which was actually once a CHURCH!!! The opulent interiors and the attention to detail from the lighting to how the menus are created meant that there is no other bar experience quite like Soul.
This is a Must Seen Place to be seen at !
New York & Italy combine here
Aberdeen is a University town so who knows where your server will come from, but you will always receive perfect attention here. The servers are friendly and attentive, explaining menus and choices, they do a good job.
Modern and spacious, the restaurant is designed around a typical New York Dinner, there are a lot of old pictures of Italians in New York and it has a definate 1940's atmosphere I had an Italian pasta dish & American dessert combining both counties = yummy
The long main street in Aberdeen from the docks to Holborn is the heart of Aberdeen. All the main shops can/could be found there as well as some more local ones.
Towards the centre is a bridge crossing the railway line, and nearby the entrance to St Nicholas Church graveyard.
Many the time I have walked up and down this street, having lived at the Holburn end for 3 years.
