Aberdeen, also known as the 'Granite City', is Northeast Scotland's economic powerhouse and is fuelled by North Sea oil. The urban landscape glitters with silver-grey granite and the streets are filled with shops, bars, restaurants, eateries and cultural attractions to discover. Travel to Dunnottar Castle in the south, visit local whisky distilleries, enjoy sandy beaches stretching out to the north or take a day trip to Royal Deeside. There are also plenty of excellent museums and art galleries to keep you entertained in the centre and many of these are free. So when you begin to think about feeding yourself, why not treat yourself to a sophisticated meal at one of Aberdeen's quality French restaurants?
