In Aberdeen City, there is so much to see from Footdee to Old Aberdeen, The Harbour to a trip round to Torry Battery to spot dolphins, followed by a beach tour and of course, an ice cream.
Footdee is also known as Fittie and is an old fishing village at the east end of the harbour and is a particularly interesting example of the planned housing development laid out in 1809 by John Smith.
This area of Aberdeen hosts the beautiful University of Aberdeen. You will also find old historical buildings, green areas and old cobbled streets. It is a must to visit in Aberdeen.
Aberdeen Harbour is one of the UK’s most active ports and handles vessel arrivals, grains and mineral cargoes. If you are a fan of boats, the harbour is a MUST.
Torry Battery (dolphin watch)
The Torry Battery is an artillery battery which overlooks the harbour. From Torry battery, you will be able to spot dolphins playing in the water as well as watch boats coming in and out of the harbour.
Aberdeen beach, even on a cold day is a spectacular view and you can also enjoy a nice walk along the beach boulevard, whilst enjoying an ice cream.
Since 2011, Marischal College has acted as the headquarters of Aberdeen City Council and is one of the most fantastic buildings in the city. As Broad Street is the centre of Aberdeen and newly renovated, it is a must to go and enjoy a coffee and watch the water fountain.
