Aberdeen is a large city in Northeast Scotland with a rough population of 227,000, making it the third-most populous city in Scotland. Once famed for its traditional industries of fishing, paper-making, shipbuilding and textiles, the city has since been overtaken by its oil industry and seaport, and in recent years Aberdeen has been referred to as the off-shore oil capital of Europe. The city is also known for its thriving business economy and opportunity for up and coming businesses.
The area is known for its outdoor beauty spots including a long, sandy coastline, well-kept parks and gardens as well as citywide floral displays. Many of Aberdeen's buildings were built during the Victorian Granite Era giving the city a unique look and feel, in addition to the nickname of 'the Granite City.' Aberdeen granite was even used to build part of the Houses of Parliament and Waterloo Bridge in London.
Aberdeen offers great shopping experiences including its traditional shopping streets of Union Street and George Street as well as the Bon Accord and Trinity shopping centres. The city was also awarded Fairtrade City status by the Fairtrade Foundation in 2004.
There is plenty to do in Aberdeen given the city has a wide range of cultural activities including museums, galleries and live music events and venues. Notable landmarks in the city include Duthie Park, the Maritime Museum and King's College Chapel. The city has two universities, the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University which are collectively attended by around 32,000 students.
Aberdeen is a lively city that's full of personality, making it a great location for any business that's looking to advertise in Scotland.
