Fly into Aberdeen Airport (ABZ) from airports all over the UK, as well as some key European cities, to explore the city, Highlands and islands. Aberdeen is the fastest growing of BAA's Scottish airports and there are numerous opportunities to catch a connecting flight or shuttle from Amsterdam (AMS), Heathrow (LHR) or Gatwick (LGW).
With Aberdeen flights transporting you into a relaxing and tranquil location, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice with all the activities on offer. Indulge in some castle visiting and explore historical buildings that date back to the 16th century. Ramble amongst the ruins or visit fully operational castles that house belongings from the oldest Scottish ancestors.
For adults there are plenty of opportunities to try the locally produced whisky and whisky trails to sample tots of the Scottish liquor are offered in abundance. If you tire of walking tours and whisky sampling, you can venture out of the main city and find a quiet spot to relax, as nearby some stunning scenery along the river Dee awaits, ideal for salmon fishing and some quiet time.
If it's culture and history you are looking for, then a visit to Marischal College and Museum is essential. A large selection of ancient cultural artefacts from around the world is displayed in this building, which has the honour of being the second largest granite structure in the world. The Aberdeen Maritime Museum and the Gordon Highlanders Museum also offer visitors great insight into the city's rich history.
Union Street is Aberdeen's main shopping vicinity, and the Mercat or Market Cross, a landmark that indicated where ancient market days were allowed to take place, can be found at the east end of this popular street. A visit to the Aberdeen Art Gallery is a must see as it is home to one of the finest collections of paintings and sculptures from the 15th century to the present day. History lovers will enjoy Provost Skene's House, the 16th-century St Machar's Cathedral and Kings College Chapel at Aberdeen University. For those looking for some light-hearted entertainment a trip to Aberdeen beach and the Satrosphere science and discovery centre are ideal.
