EXPLORE Aberdeen

Don't Go Home Without

No trip to Aberdeen is complete without sampling some of the region's world-famous malt whisky. Taste a dram or two of single malt Scotch at the charming Glen Garioch distillery in the historic market town of Oldmeldrum, just 19 miles from the hotel. This is one of Scotland's oldest operating distilleries – they've been making the "water of life" here since 1797.

Must See

Aberdeen Maritime Museum overlooks the harbour and is just a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Spend an afternoon learning all about the Granite City's long and fascinating relationship with the ocean, which includes shipbuilding, fishing and the oil industries. The museum's centrepiece is an impressive three-storey model of a North Sea oil production platform. Entry to the museum is free.

Must Do

Take in the history of the city's main shopping area, Union Street, a stone's throw from the hotel. Built at the start of the 19th century to provide an attractive entrance into Aberdeen, Union Street is a huge viaduct lined with granite buildings.

Local Tips

Aberdeen's city centre is relatively small and easy to explore on foot. If you prefer to take the bus, note that Aberdeen's public buses only accept exact fares, so make sure you have enough change before you board. For a tasty meal with water views at a bargain price, visit the old fishing village of Footdee and enjoy some takeaway fish and chips by the water at sunset.
