Aberdeen Bed and Breakfasts

Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland and as such offers a wide range of bed and breakfast establishments.

Located on the north east coast of Scotland Aberdeen is nicknamed 'The Granite City' due to its buildings which incorporate local granite. The silvery quality of these buildings and the beautiful sandy coastline that Aberdeen boasts has also caused it to be called 'the silver city with the golden sands'. So if you have ever considered staying in one of many excellent Aberdeen bed and breakfasts then read on.

The coastal location of Aberdeen has proved a boon, particularly in the past few decades and proves a popular location for Aberdeen bed and breakfasts offering glorious sea views. Fishing, paper-making, textiles and shipbuilding have been superseded by the oil industry as the area has benefited from the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s and the seaport remains the largest in north east Scotland.

The beauty of Aberdeen can not be understated however and the city has won the Britain in Bloom competition no less than 10 times. As one of the largest cities in Scotland, Aberdeen boasts a wide selection of amenities. The city has a vibrant nightlife, enhanced by several high class restaurants and by day boasts some of the best shopping in Scotland.

The Aberdeen Art Gallery is of particular cultural significance and the city's size and importance ensures that it frequently receives visits from Scotland's National Arts Companies. The Maritime Museum charts the importance of Aberdeen as a coastal city, explaining its importance from the days of shipbuilding.

Aside from the museums Aberdeen boasts some of the finest outdoor space in north east Scotland and is famed for its parks and gardens, and of course its attractive coastline and beaches. Johnston Gardens are often credited with much of Aberdeen's amazing success in the Britain in Bloom competitions and Duthie Park is a popular venue all year with a boating pond, rose hill, play park and the second largest Winter Gardens in Europe.

St Machar's Cathedral is no longer the seat of a bishop but still possesses stunning architecture and the popular Cathedral Walk is a beautiful display of plants, presented in a formal style.
