Edinburgh Trip to Aberdeen and Dunnottar Castle

from £29.00


Aberdeen is northeast Scotland’s powerhouse, fuelled by the North Sea petroleum industry. Aberdeen is famous for its granite – a silvery-grey rock that is packed with tiny sparkling crystals. In the city you will see lots of stunning buildings made of this beautiful sparkling stone!

The coast is home to plenty of seabirds and it’s one of the best places in Scotland to spot dolphins.
The fortress Dunnotar Castle was built in the 9th century. The spectacular ruins are spread out across a grassy promontory around 50 meters above the sea. It is a dramatic film set and is known from Franco Zeffirelli’s Hamlet, starring Mel Gibson.
