Aberdeen Accommodation: An Exciting Metropolis
If you have previously enjoyed a city break in Edinburgh and are keen to find more holiday cottages in Scotland for your next break, look no further than the city of Aberdeen. Aberdeen, one of Scotland's most populous cities, is an exciting metropolis combined with the long stretch of coastline.
From city to coast
Popular attractions within the city include Aberdeen Maritime Museum, Craigievar Castle and the Codonas Amusement Park. As the city has been economically supported by the sea-industry, the boom in the fishing industry and oil industry in the early 20th Century has led to various historical developments in the city which you can learn about at various local museums and information centres. For keen art fans staying in Aberdeen holiday homes, visit the Aberdeen Art Gallery . With a wide range of displays and exhibits showcased here, there is everything from modern to pre-Raphaelite art to enjoy.
Aberdeen and the surrounding region have wonderful, clean beaches to enjoy a relaxing stroll or even a dip in the ocean. The two most popular include Balmedie Beach – stretching 14 miles it is one of Scotland's longest beaches – and Aberdeen Beach, close to the city centre, stretching from the mouth of the River Don. The city has plenty of local restaurants and pubs, with everything from international dishes to traditional Scottish cuisine. If it is your first time in Scotland, try out haggis and the 'national drink', whisky! Continue the party late into the night as Aberdeen has an electric night-life scene with a large selection of pubs, bars and nightclubs open till late here!
