Aberdeen

Flower of Scotland

The powerhouse of the northeast, Aberdeen is a prosperous urban center fueled by a thriving petroleum industry. Though the area does not attract nearly as many tourists as other Scottish destinations, the city called the Flower of Scotland is no backwater. Also dubbed the Granite City, Aberdeen is characterized by its ornate architecture, green parks, lush gardens, and award-winning floral displays. Many visitors are surprised to find such a vibrant city so far north, with a distinctly cosmopolitan nature and a strong sense of community. The oil business has made Aberdeen one of the country’s most expensive cities. Though to tourists’ delight, most of its cultural attractions are free. Aberdeen is in Aberdeenshire.
