There is so much to see and do in Aberdeen and the small town of Inverurie, just 17 miles from Aberdeen City Centre.
Aberdeen is Scotland's third largest city, known as the 'Granite City' on account of the fact that Aberdeen's buildings are built from locally quarried grey granite, which on occasions sparkles like silver due to its mica content. Aberdeen City received Royal Burgh status back in the 12th century from King David. Aberdeen Univeristy was founded in 1496 and more recently Robert Gordon University was formed in 1992.
Traditionally Aberdeen's industry revolved around fishing, today it is very much the oil capital of Scotland. Aberdeen has its own airport at Dyce.
Inverurie is one of many small towns to be discovered. It is a lovely town, with great shops and restaurants, easy access to Aberdeen and the gateway to Scotland's most scenic Castle Trail and Distillery Trail.
Inverurie is the fastest growing town in Europe, it's a great wee gem to discover. Getting to Inverurie is easy, so why not stay a while and explore Inverurie and all it has to offer.
The vibrant city life scene of Aberdeen, mixed with the more tranquil beauty spots and hideaways in the surrounding towns and villages of Aberdeenshire makes this part of Scotland the perfect place to combine a city centre break with a relaxing (or exhilirating!) get away from it all short break.
