Aberdeen, a year-round destination
24/09/12 14:33 Filed in: Blog
As a global centre for the oil and gas industry, Aberdeen is often seen more as a business than a leisure destination. But, the truth is that the Granite City is great for both.
The city’s economy is one of the most vibrant in Europe (second only in the UK to central London), but it is the quality of life that many people really find attractive.
Particularly on a sunny day, when the granite sparkles, Aberdeen looks its best. If you are unlucky enough to suffer duller weather, there are plenty of other indoor activities to enjoy. Highlights include the Aberdeen Art Gallery, Aberdeen Maritime Museum and the David Welch Winter Gardens. If you like castles, Aberdeenshire is the place for you! This is Corgarff.
Add to the city’s attractions the glories of Aberdeenshire.
Here you can sample the delights of Royal Deeside, or choose to seek out the interesting coastal and fishing towns around the coast.
For those who like activity, you can choose a golf course for every day of the month. Or, you can aim high and play a round on the brand new Trump International Golf Links Scotland
, described as the best golf course in the world.
If you prefer a little more adrenaline, they you can choose activities ranging from hot-air ballooning to gliding, or a range of winter sports at Glenshee or the Lecht.
