As one of Scotland's largest and most vibrant cities, Aberdeen is fast becoming as popular as Glasgow and Edinburgh as a top city break destination. Plus, it has the advantage of being right next to the incredible Scottish highlands, which makes it the an excellent location for outdoor activities. It’s got an impressive nightlife scene too, thanks to the large student population in the city, with lots of stylish bars, traditional pubs and late night clubs spread throughout the city.
Although Scotland's third largest city is one of the most northerly destinations in the UK, it's not as hard to get to as you may think. Regular train services run to Aberdeen from the rest of the UK, and there are plenty of budget coach fares that also run daily. Or, if you're coming from further afield, then you can get a domestic flight to Aberdeen Airport for a small fee. So, you have no excuse not to visit!
