We offer a number of historical-themed walks, usually lasting 2hrs, such as "Forgotten Fittie", "Tales of Old Torry", "Lost Cinemas", "Old Aberdeen's Architectural Secrets" and have mini-tours of one hour in length around Duthie Park, Old Aberdeen, Castlegate, Fittie and Torry.

We also offer indoor storytelling events in the autumn in various venues throughout the city including, The Cult of Coffee, Rosemount; Old Blackfriars, Castlegate; Inn at the Park Hotel, Ferryhill; and the Prince of Wales, St Nicholas Lane. We also do informal local history lectures in community centres and halls, and a speaker can be booked for your group or society for a set fee.

We can take private bookings, maximum group size 40; minimum 3; we can offer individual tours to couples, but the cost is higher to cover staff expenses. Details are all available on our website and Facebook page.

Tickets can be purchased from Visit Scotland's iCentre in Union Street or online via our website.

You can also buy copies of Dr Brown’s history books in local bookshops or via Amazon. Each volume has a series of self-guided walks in different areas of Aberdeen city and shire with stories of fascinating buildings, legends, and local worthies. Look out for Hidden Aberdeen: History on your Doorstep and Under Your Feet (2013); Hidden Aberdeenshire: the Coast (2014); Hidden Aberdeenshire: the Land (2015).
