1 Week In Aberdeen

So you've got a week in Aberdeen - that's great news. Let's see how you can best use your time while you're here.

What Should I Do For One Week In Aberdeen?

If you have 7 days to spend in Aberdeen, there are plenty of things you can do! Here are some suggestions:

  • Visit the Maritime Museum - it's a great way to learn about the city's connection to the sea. Allow at least 2 hours for this.
  • Explore Old Aberdeen - this part of town has some beautiful architecture and historic sites. You could easily spend a whole day here.
  • Go to the beach - Aberdeen has a few different beaches to choose from. Spend a day soaking up the sun (if you're lucky!) or just enjoy a walk along the shore.
  • Take a trip to Dunnottar Castle - it's about an hour's drive south of Aberdeen, but it's one of Scotland's most iconic castles. You'll need at least half a day for this.
  • Visit the Gordon Highlanders Museum - this is a must for history buffs. It tells the story of one of Scotland's most famous regiments. Allow around 2 hours for this.
  • Explore the city centre - Aberdeen has plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants to keep you busy. Spend a day wandering around and seeing what you discover.
  • Take a day trip to the Cairngorms National Park - it's less than 2 hours away by car, and there are plenty of hikes and outdoor activities to enjoy. Plan to spend a full day here.

In terms of places to stay, there are plenty of options in and around Aberdeen. If you're looking to stay in the city centre, the Malmaison and Mercure Aberdeen Caledonian hotels are both good choices. If you want to be closer to the beach, the Beach Ballroom Guest House and the Sandman Signature Aberdeen Hotel are good options.
