Car Hire near Aberdeen ferry port.

by Deckerd

Are there any car hire firms that have a pick-up point convenient to the NorthLink ferry dock (port/quay/wharf)?

RE: Car Hire near Aberdeen ferry port.

by silvercity

For car hire in Aberdeen, close to the ferry port, you have two options:

The closest would probably be Enterprise

The next would be National/Alamo

I don't have addresses for them, but they can be found at www.yell.com From the terminal, a taxi should be no more than 10 minutes and £5 to either location. It may be possible to walk they're probably about 20 - 30 minutes on foot, but they may be a bit tricky to get to.

Travel Tips for Aberdeen

English Vs Gaelic...

by TracyG

You may find that in this region of Scotland that some people still speak Gaelic, so don't be alarmed if you switch on the TV to find people speaking it, there are several programmes that are always in Gaelic. Apart from this though everyone speaks good English even if their accents are very strong......

Fyvie Castle is well worth a detour!

by shrimp56

Our time was, unfortunately, constrained in our visit to Fyvie Castle -- the staff was so concerned that we would miss "the good stuff" that they gave us a private accelerated tour! What a delightful surprise! We found the Scots like that -- totally proud of their heritage and totally mindful of others needs.
.
Five families have owned the castle. The current "state" of the interiors is Edwardian. The catle is noted as well for an extensive collection of portraits.
.
It may be visited only on a tour and no interior photos are permitted.

The Beach...

by AC1 about Beach Boulevard

In Scotland, you will always find nice place to walk or just to take a break from the work routine. Quality of life is always high.

The beach is a place for most residents here to take a break from the crowded Union St. Within walking distance (if don't mind like 20 to 30 mins walk) from the city, or buses are easily available along Union St.

The ice-cream parlours seem to be the favorate here. For a quid something, you can fulfill your crave for it while enjoying the sea view along the beach with occasional ship/vessel calling the harbour and the lone standing lighthouse within sight.

TGIF or Pizza Hut are among the many restaurants available. If you are crazy for mexican food, there is Chiquitos just next to TGIF. One interesting thing about TGIF is the special offer they call Time check... or something like that. The waitress will note the time you sit down on your chair. If it is 5:15pm, you get to select the main course, any main course, for 5.15 quid each. Quite a good deal for those big eaters but always remember to get there early.

The leisure center in the middle of the boulevard offers activities like ten-pin flouresent bowling alleys, bumper cars, arcade center, roller coaster, water splashing free falls, etc etc... Definitely a good place for family outing with kids.

Also, there is a cinema whereby you can pay 9.99quid per month and just watch unlimited movies.. as many as you like.. Casual... something you can relax in.

Miami Beach - my mistake Aberdeen actually

by scottishvisitor about Miami Beach

Give it a miss, this place looks posh and is well advertised locally, the only good thing about this restaurant is if you book tickets for a movie at the adjacent cinema you get two for one on your main course. The food is nothing to write home about. There are lots more decent restaurants in this vicinty, so make your choice somewhere else. NOTHING GOOD HERE YOU WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITH MACDONALDS OR BURGER KING!!

Museum of Lighthouses

by ringleader

Tells the story of the Stevenson family, lighthouse engineers. This is not polished row of exhibits, it’s a real-life working lighthouse turned inside out to accommodate visitors, and to show them exactly how a lighthouse works. Think of all the things a lighthouse engineer could collect, and you just may find it here! You can climb to the top or just observe the mechanics that make a lighthouse work.

The Museum of Scottish Lighthouses is open every day of the year except December 25th, 26th and January 1st, 2nd.
