The main construction material is granite so the buildings are mainly light grey. When the sun hits the stone the buildings sparkle.
We loved the feeling of being by the sea. The air in Aberdeen is brisk!
The quaint cobblestone street up to our hotel.
Union Street, the main shopping street. Majestic buildings along both sides.
We arrived around midday, explored the inner city near our hotel and settled into a great steak house for dinner. We keep finding such good places to eat!
A wee dram - you can’t be in Scotland and not have one.
Our hotel was directly across from The Maritime Museum so the next morning we had a good old poke around there. The building is three stories high. A very large model of a North Sea oil rig built in the middle dominates the museum. I can imagine it would be the sort of thing that a bloke would love to look at.
Great views over the busy harbour
There are lots of interactive displays and I found my self pulled in to play at generating power by wave power and tide power.
After visiting the museum we departed for Edinburgh. We were sad to leave Aberdeen and wished we had stayed longer.
