Aberdeen, commonly referred to as the Energy Capitol of Europe, is Scotland’s third largest city, with a population exceeding 220,400. From the mid 1700s up until the mid 20th century, many of its buildings were constructed using local grey granite procured from Rubislaw Quarry, giving the city a sophisticated silvery-grey appearance to match its current reputation as a thriving business hub. The region of Aberdeenshire is perhaps best known for its native Aberdeen Angus breed of cattle , the rich and flavourful meat from which is used to produce some of the best quality beef in the UK. The region is also home to the town of Peterhead, which sits on the easternmost point of mainland Scotland and exists as one of biggest fishing ports in Europe. With an abundance of exceptional produce available from the local and surrounding areas, it’s not surprising that Aberdeen is home to a host of fantastic eateries. Seafood lovers will delight in the offerings of restaurants such as Silver Darling, and some delicious meaty treats can be found at venues including The Adelphi and Tropeiro. One of the best collections of whisky in the country can be found at The Grill, which houses over 500 bottles and has won numerous awards for its dedication to Scotland’s favourite tipple.
