Aberdeen, the Granite City. From historic landmarks to rustic coastlines to bustling cities, Aberdeen has something for everyone. 

From Castle Fraser to Crathes Castle, each of these historic sights offers their own individual traits. When visiting Aberdeen, it is a must to visit at least one of their fantastic castles. Whilst dogs cannot usually visit inside, they tend to be welcomed around the grounds so a perfect place for pooches!

Den and the Glen
Ideal for families, the Den and the Glen is Aberdeen’s very own Disneyland. Featuring a site full of everyone’s favourite characters from nursery rhymes and fairy-tales, as well as many play areas, this is a great day out. 

Aberdeen Beach
Whether you are brave enough to swim in the North-East or simply want to take a stroll and then have your lunch in one of the many cafes/ restaurants facing the waterfront, a trip to the beach is definitely worth the visit. 

When finished at the beach, why not visit Codonas? Codonas is Aberdeen’s amusement park and has fantastic facilities. From an indoor arcade to go-kart racing, there are so many different activities. This is an ideal day-out for all ages.

Aberdeen Art Gallery
Recently reopened, after a £34.6 million redevelopment, the art gallery has many different exhibitions, including an interactive section that is extremely family-friendly. Once finished admiring the artwork, there is an outdoor balcony that offers a birds eye view over the city centre.
