Aberdeen Tourism

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.
