Best Viewpoints in Aberdeen Day & Night?

by silvercity

Hi I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on the best viewpoints in Aberdeen, both day and night. I've been to the Tory Battery, it's one of my favourite spots, but was curious about other places. I noticed there was a hill above the airport, is there a view from there? Any other ideas?

thanks for the suggestions

RE: Best Viewpoints in Aberdeen Day & Night?

by lnalba

If you can get to the top of St Nicholas House in Broad Street (council headquarters) that gives a great view. It should be possible as it's a public building. I've been up there a couple of times in the past. The hill to which you refer is probably Kirkhill, which is mostly forested. It is a bit far from the city to have a really great view, but coming into the city on the A96 which goes right past Kirkill will give you a glimpse of the sea and some of the taller buildings. Perhaps a walk in the area of the wood will produce a good shot! The top of the Citadel in the Castlegate gives a great view of Union Street and similarly, at the Holborn street end there is a building which faces down Union Street in the opposite direction. Closer to the city you have the Kepplehills area of Bucksburn (the highest point, next to a church (Newhills?) is an extension of Kepplehills Road), which is good. Think I'm out of ideas now, hope this is of some help! lnalba.

Travel Tips for Aberdeen

Walk the Track

by scottishvisitor

The track runs parallel to Auchiries Road, a small minor road which connects to the main Peterhead/Aberdeen road. We sometimes walk this road which passes by Craighead caravan park, but more usually we walk the track. The track is a pleasant walk through open countryside and passes by Errolston Riding stables. There is little traffic here - there are only three houses and one farm with a bit of distance between them - so only local traffic but on many a walk I have hardly given way to any. You can take a short walk here or a longer one, the track mirrors the road and goes all the way to the main Aberdeen Road - the closer you get the more you hear the traffic!! I like to wander here at a leisurly pace, say hello to the horses and see the beauty that some careless gardener has thrown away.

A Ruined Castle in a tiny village

by scottishvisitor

Slains Castle sits high up on the sea cliffs and is said to be the place which inspired Bram Stoker to write the classic novel Dracula. Whitby in England has the same claim, but no matter, it is a place where I walk often. It has stood as a ruin for many years, the inside is quite fascinating a bit like walking through history, a place where you can dream and relax.

Hungary Eater

by Gypsyjuliet about Hungary Eater

Hungary Eater is run by an authentic Hungarian family. It has a charming atmosphere and the family make you feel like you are a personal friend invited to dinner at their own home. Zoltan will quite happily talk about life, wines and food in Hungary whilst his wife Rylla is happy to share her penchant for biographies and autobiographies!!! Lunchtimes are half price. Booking is rather hit or miss. Ask for vegetarian options. They serve a vast array of Hungarian wines and spirits.

Castlegate and the Market Cross

by uglyscot

The Castlegate is a small area of Aberdeen, located at the east-end of Union Street. Locals would consider it to be the square at the end of Union Street where the Mercat Cross and the Gallowgate are located.

At the upper end of Castlegate stands The Salvation Army Citadel, in a castle-like castellated mansion, on the site of the medieval Aberdeen Castle. Castlegate was the site of the castle gates until its destruction in 1308, hence the name of the area.

Aberdeen's Mercat Cross was built in 1686 by John Montgomery, a native of Aberdeen. This open-arched structure, 21 ft (6 m) in diameter and 18 ft (5 m) high, comprises a large hexagonal base from the centre of which rises a shaft with a Corinthian capital, on which is the royal unicorn. The base is highly decorated, including medallions illustrating Scottish monarchs from James I to James VII.
[Information from Wikipedia]

The Gallowgate which is just off the main square is where the cities gallows used to be located and public hangings took place.

To the west, just off the main square is the Castlegate Well. It is no longer used,but a small bronze statue has been erected over the top.
