Scotland's oil capital and third biggest city, and its
surroundings, blend the old with the new; urban attractions with
outdoor beauty. With striking granite-built architecture and a
strong maritime heritage, the city has lots to recommend it. Like
800 shops of all kinds along the 'shopping mile' and art galleries
boasting paintings from Monet, Picasso and Renoir.
Enjoy artful food from around the world and plenty of music too.
Stay in our hotel in the surrounding countryside and you'll also be
close to 52 golf courses, a thousand castles or ruins, and eight
nature reserves. Get up close to frolicking dolphins in the Moray
Firth or explore the wilds of Scotland's largest national park.
Don't leave without following Queen Victoria's footsteps through
Royal Deeside where you can explore the Royals' family holiday
spots, including one or two distilleries!
