Granite buildings and stately castles

Aberdeen is known as the ‘Granite City’ as so many of its buildings are hewn from this incredibly dense stone. And when the sun shines, the contrast between the grey granite and the abundance of green foliage is remarkable. Aberdeen has no fewer than 6 parks to visit and enjoy. Several more historical Scottish highlights are to be found just outside the city. These include Dunnottar Castle, built on a cliff on the coast, and Balmoral Castle, the summer residence of Queen Elizabeth II. And you really should visit the small fishermen’s houses and tiny streets of Fittie village, where you can dine on Aberdeen’s finest fish dishes.
