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 220,000 people.

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