Aberdeen stands on an impressive site between the rivers Dee and Don. Join us on a journey as we travel from the historic Bridge of Dee, at one time the only entrance to the city, along Riverside Drive towards the harbour. From the Castlegate, the administrative heart of the city, we travel to the seafront with its 4 miles of golden sands and retrace our steps into Union Street, the Green and Schoolhill, with their distinctive granite buildings. Passing the modern Bon Accord & St Nicholas shopping centres, we finally arrive in the secluded streets of Old Aberdeen, ending at the Brig o' Balgownie, the historic route to the north over the River Don. Aberdeen's motto 'Bon Accord' features on the city's coat of arms, and it is also used at the end of the traditional toast: 'Happy to meet, sorry to part, happy to meet again.' We hope you enjoy these glimpses of our historic and modern city.
