Aberdeen The glittering granite city

Flights direct from Cardiff to Aberdeen

Aberdeen is a city situated amongst untouched countryside, striking coastlines and is near to the largest National Park in Britain. Alongside this stunning natural beauty is the glittering granite that makes up the city’s architecture and sparkles in the sunshine.

Visitors can then explore Aberdeen’s cultural gems, including many museums, art galleries and 17 castles that are part of Scotland’s Castle Trail. Aberdeen also has a strong relationship with the sea so boasts a great maritime history.

Equally Aberdeen has a buzzing cosmopolitan atmosphere, with more than 800 shops on the ‘Granite Mile’ and a varied nightlife to keep any visitor entertained!
