A weekend in Aberdeen: Top things to do


Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland. Though smaller than Glasgow and Edinburgh, it can rival the big two for activities during a weekend stay.

Aberdeen might not be known for its weather, but summers are often beautiful up here. Balmedie Beach and City Beach are great for walking, surfing and sunbathing.

Museums and art galleries

2636873_1a68693bThe Gordon Highlanders Museum is dedicated to what Sir Winston Churchill described as “the finest regiment in the world.” Aberdeen Maritime Museum explores the city’s sea-based industries, while Aberdeen Art Gallery is notable for its fine collection of pre-Raphaelite art.

Gardens

223109_a55c23f0Aberdeen has several spectacular parks, which are great for walking or enjoying afternoon tea in their accompanying cafés. Duthie Park is a 44-acre site with open spaces, evergreen trees and flowerbeds, while Johnston Gardens is a green oasis in the heart of the city featuring ponds of mallards, Aylesbury and Muscovy ducks.

Architecture

640px-Marischal_College_ASt Machar’s Cathedral is an ancient holy site with tombs and monuments dating from the 1400s. Almost as old is Stain’s Castle, which was built in 1596 and was Bram Stoker’s inspiration for Dracula’s castle. Appropriately in what’s nicknamed ‘Granite City’, Marischal College is a Victorian granite building and home to Aberdeen Council.

Drinking

facebook27-1200x520For beer lovers, up and coming independent brewer BrewDog serves a wide variety of craft beers. If you want to listen to music as you drink, Krakatoa offers live music every Friday and Saturday. If short drinks are more your thing, the Siberia Vodka bar offers over 40 different flavoured vodkas.

DishesEating

Aberdeen has a great selection of eateries. For Turkish food go to Nargile, while top Indian fare can be enjoyed at Monsoona, Bheemas and Ambals.

Shopping

union_square_usw280109_4The Square is Aberdeen’s favourite shopping centre, but the city also has many specialist shops, such as Silly Bears for everything to do with bears, Teasel and Tweed for handmade gifts, and iMusic for all things tuneful.
