Thiriving cosmopolitan energy city - North East Scotland.
Known as the Granite City, due to the locally quarried granite construction of the Victorian properties, there is also a growing number of modern estates at the periphery. The countryside is very close and commuting from a wide range of small villages is possible within 30-40 minutes.
The city centre is active and had many excellent shopping opportunities from large tasteful shopping malls, including Union Square and Bon Accord & St. Nicholas, to small specialist shops. Smaller shopping centres are located in a number of areas such as Rosemount, Mannofield, Seafield, Cults, Kittybrewster, Bridge of Dee, Mastrick and Woodside.
There is an excellent Hospital and Primary care medical network and a wide range of schools from private Robert Gordons College, Albyn School and St Margarets School for Girls, to State Schools and the International School of Aberdeen that offers the International Baccalaureate. There are two Universities The Robert Gordon University and Aberdeen University offering a wide range of vocational and academic courses.
Sport and leisure are well catered for with a notable football team Aberdeen Football Club. There are many public and private sports facilities, including beautiful public parks and at least 54 Golf courses throughout the North East. In the countryside there are opportunities for hill walking, riding, gliding, sailing and even surfing if you’re brave enough.
There is a plentiful supply of housing available for rent varying from city centre accommodation for students, professionals and executives, to smaller houses and rural cottages up to large penthouse apartments and detached family homes or even country estate houses.
Hopefully Aberdeen can provide you with an exciting and interesting place to stay and you will enjoy a warm North East welcome.
