These are my top five things to do in Aberdeen, Scotland. Aberdeen is the third largest city in Scotland and is found in the North-East of the country. The two things it is most famous are oil and granite. 1) Newburgh Beach - around twenty minutes drive to the North of Aberdeen, Newburgh Beach is a beautiful sandy beach famous for its seal colony, which is found where the River Ythan meets the sea. As well as the seals, Newburgh Beach also has Europes largest sand dune area, and old world war two defences. 2) Dunnotar Castle - to the south of Aberdeen, just outside of Stonehaven, Dunnotar Castle is found on a rocky headland jutting out into the North Sea. It has played a huge role in Scotland's history, particularly during the Jacobite rising of the 18th century. 3) The Old Railway Line - starting at Duthie Park in the centre of Aberdeen, and leading 16 miles out of town to Banchory, cycling along the Old Railway Line is the perfect way to spend a day. 4) Crathes Castle - the castle can be reached by either car or by cycling along the old railway line. It is a perfect example of a 16th century Scottish castle, and both the grounds and castle are well worth a visit. 5) Marischal College - this is found right in the centre of Aberdeen and is the second largest granite building in the world. It was originally used by the University of Aberdeen, but was recently renovated and is now used by Aberdeen City Council. Filmed using a Pentax x-5 and GoPro.
