Aberdeen travel: Please help!!

by Miahri

Hello guys,

I'll be in Aberdeen for a week late August - early September. Need an expert advice on what to see in the city and countryside.

I want also to do a bit of shopping for cloths and shoes. I've been to the UK (London) before and found prices there too high. Is it the same with Aberdeen?

As I'll be going on training in Vienna later, would it be better to leave shopping for Vienna, Austria to buy good quality cloths and shoes at a more reasonable price?

Many thanks in advance.

Hi Miahri,

Aberdeen has loads of castles in the vicinity - still functioning ones like Castle Fraser or ruined ones like Dunottar. A bit further afield, but still easilly accessible are distilleries plus lots more castles.

In the city there are several shopping centres, but nothing particularly unique about any of them. You will find all the high-street shops you will get anywhere else in the UK, plus a few independent boutique shops. Maybe worth having a look around Belmonty Street and The Academy shopping centre for some more eclectic stuff.

Hope this helps.

Hi there Aberdeen has a lot to offer but you might want to consider car hire as most interesting places are off the beaten track - but the scenery is awesome.
Shopping would not be a problem if you stick to the High Street Stores - many bargaings can be had at the end of summer in the Bon Accord Center, St. Nicholas Center & Union Street Vienna will be a lot more expensive

Hello guys,

Thank you very much for your help.

I have some more questions. Where in Aberdeen I should go for a not expensive nice meal/take aways? How much I should budget for daily meal?

Hi Miahri,

I have a couple of tips for Aberdeen restaurants on my travel pages - I will try and stick some more on over the next few days.

The good thing about Aberdeen is that it is awash with restaurants although not all good quality or value.

You won't go hungry for lack of choice though.

Hi Saracen,

Thanks for your replies.

Could you please advise me of a cheeper way of making a castles tour in aberdeen? Are the castles nearby, those that could be seen over a weekend, reachable by public transport? how much it would cost? and how much is the entrance fee?

Look forward also to your advice on where to eat.

I heard that aberdeen is as expensive as london. Is that true?



Travel Tips for Aberdeen

The Queen in Aberdeen...

by TracyG

We were very lucky that on the 28th May 2002 the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh came to Aberdeen as part of the Golden Jubilee tour of the UK - she spent a quite a while in Kings College at Aberdeen Uni adressing the Scottish Parliment (pic from the Aberdeen Uni gallery) I also miss the shopping when I am away from Aberdeen, it is great for quite a small city.

Feel the force of the North Sea

by duncanlbrown

Greyhope road winds around from the South Pier of Aberdeen harbour to Nigg bay, and offers great views of the harbour traffic, the lighthouse and makes you realise that the North Sea is a wild windy place. Hang on to your hats and cameras! Once your finished, nip into Campbell's pub for a pint of 80' and a doorstep sandwich.

The Red Well, Whitehills

by stevezero

The Red Well is a source of water that it is protected by an ancient structure, possibly Roman. The spring can still be seen inside and has a red tint due to the large iron content of the water.

Can be found on the walk from Banff to Whitehills. Or you can find it on a minor road from Whitehills.

Yu's. Yu's is a gorgeous...

by nickisim

Yu's. Yu's is a gorgeous chinese/cantonese restaurant situated in the heart of Aberdeen city centre on Union Street.
Other's that we liked were Sawadee (Thai), Cove Bay Hotel (pub/traditional & the KURY on King Street.
Upmarket restaurant so no jeans and sweatshirts!! We opted for the banquet meal and the aromatic duck was second to none. Compliments to the chef.

Drum Castle

by SallyM

Drum Castle is a medieval (13th century) tower with a later (Jacobean) house built on. As you go around you step from one era to another. I particularly liked the library, which occupies the ground floor of the original tower.

The gardens are a short walk away from the house - don't miss them, as they are very attractive, with gardens based on different historical periods and a good collection of roses.

The property is run by the National Trust for Scotland (National Trust members also get in free), and so as you would expect, also has a tea room and shop. The tea room is quite small and operates on a rather odd system - you order your hot drinks, but cakes are on open display - you help yourself and pay in the shop afterwards. There is also a second hand bookshop (well, bookcase, really) with an honesty box.

Drum Castle is only a short distance from Crathes Castle, so visiting both makes a good day out.

Open Easter to September
