Overview of Aberdeen

Aberdeen is a city in the Highlands of North East Scotland in the North of England. The city began as two seperate Burghs Old Aberdeen and New Aberdeen each situated on the two local rivers of the Dee and Don, gradually the two merged into the incorporated city it is known as today. Due to the architecture being made of locally quarried grey granite it is often called Granite City or the Silver City.

The city is situated near a long sandy coastline of the North Sea marked with jagged cliffs with the city itself resting on a base of silt and sandstone. Features such as misty moors, tranquil lochs and the mountainous regions of the Cairngorms National Park make up the landscape that surround this historic city. It has a history as a coastal town with its seafaring, ship building, paper making and whiskey production and in more recent times the oil industry that lead to the city’s economic boom and for it to be called the Oil Capital of Europe.

The city is characterised by its unique architecture and grey stone buildings the granite structures showing no sign of weathering and look brand new as can be seen of the Town House in Union Street and Marischal College. Stone that had been quarried at Rubislaw Quarry was used to build the Houses of Parliament and Waterloo Bridge in London.
