Bordered by the North Sea, this incredible county has become a regular stomping ground for the Royal Family. And it’s no wonder with the 65 miles of coastline that lies beneath the grandeur of rugged mountains and castle ruins, which replicate a scene from a fairy tale. There are so many cultural gems to be discovered that anyone who is looking for places to stay in Aberdeen City and Shire will be spoilt for choice.
The natural, untamed countryside contrasts with the ultra-modern architecture and hustle and bustle of the city centre. When the sun shines, the stone buildings catch the light and shimmer uncontrollably, giving it the moniker of the Silver City. In and among the lively streets you can uncover ancient histories and artefacts, which are preserved in the local museums.
If you want to travel outside of the city you will find luxury accommodation in Aberdeen that is located in more rural areas where you can explore the forests and wildlife, amble around attractive fishing villages or browse artisan shops.
Because of the extensive coastline, anyone who stays at hotels in Aberdeen City and Shire can dine on freshly caught fish and seafood from Scotland’s very own natural larder. So whether you have a penchant for fine food or simply want to breathe in the crisp sea air, you will be in your element in this wild and wonderful county that is so often underappreciated.
