Aberdeen (The Granite City) – A City Guide


Aberdeen (The Granite City) is Scotland’s third largest city. Aberdeen
is the chief commercial centre and seaport in the north-east of
Scotland. It boasts the title of Oil Capital of Europe thanks to the
plentiful supply of crude oil in the North Sea, and stands on a bay of
the North Sea, between the mouths of the rivers Don and Dee.


Aberdeen grew up as two separate burghs – Old Aberdeen at the mouth of
the Don and New Aberdeen, a fishing and trading settlement where the
Denburn entered the Dee estuary. The earliest charter was granted by
King William the Lion about 1179, confirming the corporate rights
granted by David I. The city received other royal charters later. In
1319, the Great Charter of Robert the Bruce transformed Aberdeen into a
property owning and financially independent community. The city was
burned by Edward III of England in 1336, but was soon rebuilt and
extended, and called New Aberdeen.

For many centuries the city was
subject to attacks by the neighbouring lords, and was strongly
fortified, but the gates were all removed by 1770. In the 18th century
a new Town Hall was built, elegantly furnished with a marble fireplace
from Holland and a set of fine crystal chandeliers and sconces. The
19th century was a time of considerable expansion. By 1901 the
population was 153,000 and the city covered more than 6,000 acres (24
km²). In the late 18th century, the council embarked on a scheme
of road improvements, and by 1805 George Street, King Street and Union

Street were open, the latter a feat of extraordinary engineering skill
involving the partial levelling of St Catherine’s Hill and the building
of arches to carry the street over Putachieside. The increasing
economic importance of Aberdeen and the development of the shipbuilding
and fishing industries brought a need for improved harbour facilities.
During this century much of the harbour as it exists today was built
including Victoria Dock, the South Breakwater and the extension to the
North Pier.

Places of interest

The main places of interest for the tourists in Aberdeen are the

    textiles, silver, and jewelry; and Alex Scott & Co. the town’s
    finest kiltmakers.

    Food and Drinks

    Although Aberdeen is a well renowned city, it does not have many
    restaurants in offer. Mainly all the restaurants and bars offer
    continental or British/Irish/Scottish cuisine. Some of the famous
    places for wine and dine are:

  • Elrond’s Cafe Bar
  • Ferryhill House
  • Howies Aberdeen
  • Martha’s Vineyard Bistro/The Courtyard Restaurant
  • Silver Darling
  • Education

    The first of Aberdeen’s two universities, the University of Aberdeen,
    was founded in 1495 by William Elphinstone, Bishop of Aberdeen and
    Chancellor of Scotland. The University of Aberdeen is Scotland’s third
    oldest, and the UK’s fifth oldest University.

    Robert Gordon’s College (originally Robert Gordon’s Hospital) was
    founded in and in the 1990s became co-educational and a day-only
    school. It also produced the Robert Gordon Institute of Technology,
    which became The Robert Gordon University in 1992.

    Gray’s School of Art, founded in 1886, is one of the oldest established
    colleges of art in the UK. Aberdeen College has several campuses in
    Aberdeen and offers a wide variety of part-time and full-time courses
    leading to several different qualifications. Northern College was a
    teacher training college with campuses in Aberdeen and Dundee. In 2000,
    the Aberdeen campus of Northern College became the University of
    Aberdeen School of Education. Aberdeen Grammar School, (now
    comprehensive, despite its name) founded in 1263 and one of the oldest
    schools in Britain.


    Aberdeen Football Club was founded in 1903. Its major success was
    winning the European Cup Winners Cup in 1983 and three League
    Championships between 1980 and 1986. The club’s stadium is Pittodrie
    which holds the distinction of being Britain’s first all-seater
    stadium. Aberdeen F.C. holds the distinction of being the last team to
    have won the Scottish Premier League Championship outside the Old Firm
    and is the only Scottish team to have won two European trophies adding
    to their European Cup Winners Cup success by winning the European Super
    Cup also in 1983. Well known footballers who have played for the club
    include Gordon Strachan (Current Celtic manager), Alex McLeish (Current
    Rangers manager) and club legend Willie Miller. Denis Law, the joint
    top scorer for the Scotland national team was also born in the city,
    but spent his professional career playing for English and Italian clubs.

    Aberdeen Golf Club was founded in 1815. It has two 18-hole courses at
    Balgownie, north of the River Don. There are other golf courses at
    Auchmill, Balnagask, Hazlehead and King’s Links.

    Tours and Sightseeing

    The Aberdeen Tourist Information Centre, where the staff can usually
    find just the right way to visit Aberdeen. Some other organized tours
    and travel agencies are there in the city. These tours are organized by
    the operators and vary from its contents, theme and price. The tours
    mainly feature the museums, art galleries, Scottish Castles etc.

    Hotels and Accommodations

    Because of increasing numbers of tourists and business travelers to the
    Granite City — Europe’s offshore oil capital and less number of hotels
    compare with tourists — hotels are likely to be heavily booked any
    time of year. So reservation in advance is a must before stepping to
    the city. Some of the Hotels in Aberdeen (ranging from Affordable to
    Luxury) are listed below:

  • Antrim Guest House
  • Station Hotel
  • Royal Hotel
  • Express by
    Holiday Inn Aberdeen
  • Thistle Aberdeen
  • Copthorne Hotel
  • The Edwardian Hotel
  • Bimini Guest House
  • The Spires
    Serviced Suites
  • Thistle Aberdeen
  • Summerhill Hotel
    and Suites
  • Macdonald Ardoe
    House Hotel
  • Britannia Hotel
  • Waterwheel Inn
  • Dyce Skean Dhu
  • Transport

    There are four main roads serving the city: A90, A96, A93, A92, A90 now
    used as a tourist route.

    The city’s original ring road, Anderson Drive, which was built in the
    1930s has long since been engulfed by the expansion of the city, and is
    inadequate for dealing with today’s traffic. To this end, a new main
    bypass road, the Western Peripheral Route, is planned to divert through
    traffic away from the city centre. The road is due to open in 2010.

    The city is well served by the national railway network. Aberdeen has
    regular rail services to Glasgow and Edinburgh as well as long distance
    trains to London via Edinburgh. It is possible to take the longest
    scheduled rail journey in the whole of the UK from Aberdeen. Regular
    trains also run north westerly towards Inverness and north to Dyce for
    the airport.

    Aberdeen also has an airport in the neighbouring town of Dyce, which is
    operated by BAA plc. As well as connecting the city to the rest of the
    UK, Aberdeen Airport (sometimes refererred to as Dyce Airport) is the
    largest helicopter terminal in the world, serving the many North Sea
    oil installations. The IATA airport code for the airport is ABZ.
