Aberdeen : Michelin's recommendations
Facing the North Sea, the “Granite City” is a major fishing port and the petro-capital of Europe. The pleasant streets of its centre are lively with businessmen, students, seafarers and tourists, who can alleviate the overall impression of greyness by strolling in its parks or along its beach. Aberdeen is also at the end of the Dee Valley, with its many castles awaiting discovery by those heading inland towards whisky country.
