Aberdeen is the third-largest city in Scotland and the industrial centre of the northeast of the country. It is well-known for its proximity to the oil industry which creates much of the city's wealth. However, the ‘granite city' as it is known due to the large number of local granite built buildings, has plenty to offer with museums and galleries offering culture as well as annual festivals and regular music performances providing entertainment. Car hire in Aberdeen means you can access much of the city with ease as well as having the opportunity to travel throughout the rest of north-eastern Scotland.
