The Private House Stay's Guide
Scotland's third largest city has been thriving since the discovery of North Sea Oil. It has a closely packed city centre made up of dark granite buildings that can make it a overcast and gloomy place at times. However there is a charm and vitality about the city that is reflected in its restaurants and night-life. Union Street is the city's main artery and is a mile long and built on pillars. North-east of the city centre on the banks of the river Don stands the ancient suburb of Old Aberdeen with its fortified cathedral, cobbled streets and houses that date from the 15th Century.
