What to see in Granite City
Aberdeen is nicknamed Granite City or Grey City due to the large amount of grey granite that was used as a building material, and was one of the cities prime exports before the North Sea Oil was found.
There are several historic buildings featuring this granite, including the turreted Town House, The Castlegate and the gothic Marishal College.
Some of the must-see attractions include Provost Skene’s House, the Aberdeen Art Gallery and the Maritime Museum – all of which offer free entrance!
Shopaholics will love The Granite Mile – Union Street – which has over 800 shops.
When it is time to get out of the city, your rental car can take you to some wonderful places, including the Cairngorms National Park, dozens of quaint villages, some marvelous golf courses (45 of them!) and miles and miles of prime salmon-fishing rivers.
Finally, no visit to Scotland would be complete without trying a wee dram of Malt Whisky at its source – go on the famous Malt Whisky Trail to see how Scotland’s most popular export is produced.
And if you’re heading south to Edinburgh, the nation’s capital, consider driving along the east coast to visit quaint coastal towns and the many historic sites this beautiful country has to offer.
