Aberdeen travel pictures

A visit to Aberdeen in the north of Scotland

Aberdeen is a city located on the east coast of Scotland. The main street that runs through Aberdeen is Union street. This is unfortunately a busy street which doesn't improve the charm of the city, although on the smaller streets besides it, there is a much more quieter atmosphere . There are several churches around the city such as St. John's, St. Mary's and St. Nicholas church. The last one is located in the middle of the city center and has a nice setting.

Other sights in Aberdeen include Marischal college which is now home of the city council, the Lion war memorial and the central library. Most of these are located on or around Union street. At the end of Union street is Castlegate located. This is a square with in the middle the Mercat cross and is surrounded by old buildings which gives a feel of Aberdeen's original city center. One sight which is a bit further away is the University of Aberdeen. This is definitely worth visiting and its main building, King's college, has a typical historical look and feel of a British college. Around King's college there are several other old buildings of which several probably date from late medieval times.

The city is small enough to seen in one day and can be visited as a day trip from nearby places. To visit it as a day trip from Edinburgh might be stretching is a little bit or it will be a long day as it is over 2 hours away. It can be easily visited from Dundee which is connected by both bus and rail.
