Aberdeen is known as the Granite City which implies a bleak and grey city. We found it to be absolutely beautiful with lots of great museums, hotels, restaurants, and leafy parks. This walking treadmill video is the second of two around this port city, known for its wealth due to the oil industry. The first treadmill walk explores the main old town and this explores the harbor. The north sea oil fields have been crucial to the modern development of Aberdeen and it’s why many of the museums have free entry.

We start out at the train station and walk through town over to the dockyards area. On the way, we get a look at the Toll Booth tower and the West Tower. We also get a glimpse of the wonderful Maritime Museum. After the docks, we make our way over to St Clements church yard for a bit of quiet beauty and greenery amongst the granite. We end up in the plaza with the Mercat Cross surrounded by an art installation.

We take a quick nature break in the small but calming cemetery of st. Clements during the city walk.

If you want a guided tours of Scotland, there are many companies that do that but this is a free walking tour of this lovely city and a great starter if you want to visit Aberdeen. Aberdeen is the city, Aberdeenshire is the large county.
I hope you enjoy this walk. We had a great time in the city and it would be a wonderful place to launch a tour of Scotland.

Info From Wikipedia:

Aberdeen is in northeast Scotland. It is Scotland’s third most populous city with an official population estimate of 196,670 for the city of Aberdeen and 228,800 for the local council area.
During the mid-18th to mid-20th centuries, Aberdeen’s buildings used locally acquired grey granite, which can sparkle like silver because of its high mica content. Since the discovery of North Sea oil in the 1970s, Aberdeen has been known as the off-shore oil capital of Europe. The area around Aberdeen has been settled for at least 8,000 years, when prehistoric villages lay around the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don. The city has a long, sandy coastline and a marine climate, the latter resulting in chilly summers and mild winters.
Aberdeen received Royal burgh status from David I of Scotland (1124–1153), transforming the city economically. The city’s two universities, the University of Aberdeen, founded in 1495, and Robert Gordon University, which was awarded university status in 1992, make Aberdeen the educational centre of the north-east of Scotland. The traditional industries of fishing, paper-making, shipbuilding, and textiles have been overtaken by the oil industry and Aberdeen’s seaport. Aberdeen Heliport is one of the busiest commercial heliports in the world and the seaport is the largest in the north-east of Scotland.
