Visit Aberdeen - Best of Aberdeen

With its magnificent location on the northeast coast of Scotland, with times Aberdeen has been able to prove itself as a major port, regional center and the hub for the emergence of the oil industry. The city has a beautiful long relationship with the North Sea. According to the locals, this is perhaps the major reason for the remarkable development of Aberdeen. Besides being one of the center of industrial development of Scotland, the rich history and architectural magnificence represents Aberdeen in an absolute contrast way. Filled with excellent castles, museums and towers in both within as well as along the countryside of the city, Aberdeen has managed to develop its tourism as well. Taking a close look on the architectural work of these historical buildings will show a major use of granite stones. This is another reason which gave the city a new name, called the Granite City. On sunny days, this stone glitters like gold making the city dazzle under the sunlight. On the other hand, the city also displays excellent masterpieces, created by the Mother Nature through its well preserved gardens and the beaches.

If you are coming to this city, make sure you have your camera in hand. This is because the stunning beauty of the city, the rich heritage of its industrial sectors, the historical secretes hidden in the outskirt regions and not to miss the gardens, give you ample opportunities to fill up your entire photo album.
