The Silver City by the Golden Sands is a nickname coined by the locals to describe the Scottish city of Aberdeen's many iconic, quarried granite buildings. More than just the home of Angus beef, this city is home to a variety of famous Scottish exports, including some historically significant whiskey distilleries. Because of this, people prefer booking their hotel in Aberdeen early, so as to have ample time to explore this Scottish city. Booking early via Opodo also ensures that you get to plan your preferred tours and shopping trips. You can filter using dates, where you'd like to visit and the number of guests. Personalise your hotel search by filtering according to the star rating and even distance from Aberdeen. Using Opodo will narrow the Aberdeen hotel options based on the type of trip you are planning quickly and effortlessly.
From your hotel in Aberdeen, a walking tour of the city will enable you to tour the classic grey granite buildings this city is known for, as well as visit and explore historic sites like St Machar's cathedral and the Aberdeen Maritime Museum. Spend a day at the Aberdeen Art Museum or browse through the numerous shops selling unique gifts, arts, and crafts for you to take home. Sample the local cuisine and try out the iconic fish and beef dishes this region is famous for. You may prefer to take a day tour of 1 or 2 of the whiskey distilleries that must be visited when in Aberdeen. Finding a cheap hotel deal outside the city centre will have you perfectly placed to plan a hike in the Cairngorms National Park to see the red deer drinking from Loch Muick. If you take a boat tour along the coast you will see magnificent cliffs and wildlife such as seabirds, puffins and dolphins as well as fantastic views of the golden beaches and the historic harbour. A scuba diving afternoon will give you a glimpse into the diverse sea life ecosystems to be found along the Scottish coast.
You can find the best Aberdeen hotel deals and cheap hotels around your preferred holiday locale with a quick online search using Opodo. You will be perfectly placed at an Aberdeen hotel in the city centre to join various tours and experience the Scottish cultural history, cuisine, and shopping. This is also an ideal area to choose a cheap hotel so you can easily explore the pubs and nightclubs after hours to get a taste of the Aberdeen nightlife. The city is also centrally located for walking tours and the distilleries are nearby. If you prefer nature trails and discovering the diverse wildlife, a search for apartments further away from the coast, near the Cairngorms National Park, or even a camping ground, would probably suit you better. If you plan on having a beach holiday, search the cheap hotels and vacation apartments available along the coastline as these are perfectly situated for both sun worshippers and those intending to explore the coastline from the decks of a boat.
