As mentioned, Aberdeen is a coastal town. It has a beautiful and very long beach, a very busy industrial harbour and a bit of wild coastline...

Aberdeen is situated between two rivers: the river Dee to the south of the city and the river Don to the north of the city.
This creates problems as far as incoming and outgoing road traffic is concerned since the number of bridges is limited, traffic jams tend to form quickly.
Here are some photos of the river Dee:

At the eastern end of the beach (the harbour end) lies the fishing village of Footdee (known locally as Fittie). It originally dates back to the 14th Century but was redeveloped around 1800.

At the opposite end of the beach to Footdee, lies another historic are of Aberdeen, The Brig O' Balgownie. The "Brig", or bridge, after which the area is named spans the river Don and dates from the 13th Century.

The Bridge of Don (not Balgownie)

Aberdeen is very fortunate to have many good walking trails right on her doorstep. Just out side the city, walkers have access to hilly walks, forest walks, moorland walks and coastal walks.
Here are some samples...
Brimmond Hill
