We spent a wonderful 48 hours exploring the wonderful city that is Aberdeen, as part of Aberdeen Restaurant Week and then we also jumped in the car we had hired to explore the highlands.
We visited some castles and drank lots of beer at Brewdog. We had such a fun time exploring this part of the world, and cant wait to return again soon.
Aberdeen is a wonderful city to visit any time of year. There’s a visit in winter, when the city becomes alive with the festive period.
If you want to head to Footdee, and further a field to places such as Brewdog, Balmoral and beyond, you will need a car. The car gave us a lot of freedom and would certainly suggest it!
During our weekend in Aberdeen, we stayed at Skene House Rosemount, located in the city centre, and only a few minutes walk to the shops, restaurants and coffee shops.
Make sure you either head over to Ellon for lunch and a beer or join them on a 90-minute tour of the brewery and factory.
There’s lots to do inside, as well as a collection of maritime artefacts, paintings, and touch-screen computers, make the material come to life. An amazing thing to do in Aberdeen!
