The city of Aberdeen can be found on the north east coast of Scotland, in an area famous for its maritime history and golden sandy beach. Aberdeen was Scotland's most prosperous fishing port during the 1930s, packed with trawler boats and although he harbour still thrives today, the area's industry is now oil. Hire a car from Aberdeen Airport, and explore the Granite City, visiting Aberdeen's historic grey landmarks. Pay a visit to Union Street, a long shopping stretch carved out of the stone, while her Majesty's Theatre, the city's independent art house at Belmont Street, and the Maritime Museum are all the same shade of grey.
