Hello, I am the creative mind behind www.igaberry.com where I share what I consider a travelicious lifestyle that won’t ruing your bank account. Next ‘honeymoon’ trip: Sicily, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovakia, Austria, and Czech Republic.
Why I chose to write about Aberdeen…
I am so excited to share more about the Granite City as I feel it is a hugely underrated touristic spot in Scotland. I am a little bit of a self-nominated Ambassador of Scotland, or at least that’s what my Scottish friends like to say. I am just way to passionate about Great Britain not to talk and write about it.
5 things to see and do in Aberdeen
During sunny days you can explore Duthie Park and when the sky starts to turn cloudy you can hide inside, and feel like you are on holidays in one of the tropical rooms. I’ve shared my experience from there here.
Fittie // Fishermen’s Village
Fittie – fishermen’s village, a cutie area I have already posted about here. It is one of the most popular posts on my website, maybe because one of the homeowners found the photo of me posing in front of his yellow doors. Check it out yourself! It’s a cute and quirky place near the beach, perfect to start your visit in Aberdeen. You will find small fisherman’s cottages and plenty of marine influences in the décor.
Walk around Aberdeen University and discover the romantic side of Aberdeen as you are strolling around small, cobbled streets. My favourite time to visit Old Aberdeen and Seaton Park is late Spring when everything is blossoming. This adds a little bit of colour to the Granite City.
Aberdeen Art Gallery
After all of the changes and developing currently going on I am really intrigued about what will be the final result. I loved going on Saturdays to Aberdeen Art Gallery, so I can imagine that I will adore it even more after all of the changes.
His Majesty’s Theatre
At the end of your day in Aberdeen pop in to see one of the performances in HMT. Sit down and enjoy one of many shows that visit Aberdeen.
Iga’s Recommendation for Food & Drink in Aberdeen
Start your day with an exceptional tea and green tea waffles at Tea Zone. If you are peckish around lunchtime pop into Café 52, which I am a big fan of; you can find them at Aberdeen Green. In the meantime, if you are hungry before dinner grab a quick bite in one of many cafes around the city centre. Moonfish Café would definitely satisfy your senses at dinner time, or if you want something with an Italian twist go to the oldest Italian restaurant La Lombarda in Aberdeen at the Castle Gate.
