Welcome to our sparkling city by the sea. Aberdeen, Scotland's third largest city is a compact city with wide open spaces; walk along a mile long stretch of golden beach (you may even spot dolphins playing in the harbour mouth) and admire the sparkling granite architecture that we are so famous for. Step back in time in Aberdeen's old town as you visit the cobbled roads and historic buildings in Old Aberdeen, or stay in the heart of a bustling city with a vibrant foodie scene - including big names like Mackie's and BrewDog.
