About Aberdeen

About Aberdeen

Aberdeen is one of the most prosperous and beautiful regions of the UK.

Aberdeen is Scotland’s third largest city and Europe’s energy capital - a place with historic charm, a thriving economy and cosmopolitan community of some 230,000 people. 

It is rich in history from its maritime past of boat building and fishing industries, nowadays modernised with the growth of the Oil and Gas industries. From the Art Galleries, Museums, Theatres, Cinemas and Shopping venues, you will find something to suit everyone in this diverse multi-national City.

A coastline of spectacular beaches and dunes stretch north of the city, while to the west lies nearby Royal Deeside, home to some of the most beautiful countryside in Scotland and the eastern gateway to the mountainous Cairngorms National Park.
