About Aberdeen

Find out all about Aberdeen

  • Aberdeen is a port city in northeast Scotland, where the Dee and Don rivers meet the North Sea. Often known for its whiskey and offshore petroleum industry. It’s also known as the ‘Granite City’ for its many enduring grey-stone buildings.
  • Today its economy is focused on the oil industry, though it has grown more diversified to include electronics design and renewable energy resources.
