At first glance this is a thoroughly grey city. Look beneath the surface, though, and it is uniquely fascinating. Known as the 'Granite City’ thanks to the grey stone used in many buildings, it has terraced gardens, flower-decked parks – it’s famous for its displays of roses – and a skyline dotted with sky-touching spires, the most notable of which is the 195ft tower of St Nicholas Church. The city is famous for golf and is a popular seaside resort with two miles of golden beaches.
The city itself was burned down by Edward lll, resulting in a ‘new Aberdeen’ with a thriving harbour. Scotland’s third largest city still has a thriving fishing industry and acts as a base for the exploration of North Sea oil fields. Its Harbour Board claims to be the oldest business in Britain while its university is the fifth oldest.
