Aberdeen Certificated Locations
The third most populous city in Scotland, Aberdeen is known for its imposing granite buildings that sparkle like silver in the sunlight.
Much of Aberdeen's architecture was built during the Victorian era and because granite is such a durable building material, many of the historic buildings look new when they've been cleaned. Highlights include the Central Library, St Mark's Church and the Head Post Office on Crown Street.
But there's more to Aberdeen than old buildings. The city has a lively atmosphere, with parks, gardens and trendy restaurants. Meanwhile, the popular shopping precincts - Union Street and George Street - are usually filled with people and bagpipe music.
