Try going further north when you get to Aberdeen. All buses leave from the bus station next to the train station and are cheap and reliable. Ellon (a 15 min. ride away) and Fraserburgh (1hr 15m) are nice places.
Travel hub of the North East...
Aberdeen is well served by all modes of transport, with the airport serving the major British cities as well as some European ones too. The ferry also serves Orkney and Shetland.
The buses are great for getting to more distant areas and the surrounding towns. But the easiest way to get around the city centre is to walk. The taxis are also easy and cheap to use.
If you want to get to Kings College - which most people do - you will need to catch the no. 20 bus near to Marischal College.

It's not a restaurant as such, and I've never actually been there, but The Beautiful Mountain on Belmont Street is supposed to be really nice for soup and a sandwich.
My friend reccommended it to me, but unfortunately I've still not managed to go there....
Collieston is a fine resort town in Aberdeenshire, about 15 miles north of the city. The town has a nice harbour and cliffs.
From the car park take the walk up the hill on the picture for great views of the harbour.
Services are limited here with not even a cafe, but it is a really nice place
