Overview of your Aberdeen tour:

Enjoy a fascinating tour of the historical areas of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire with a local guide. Aberdeen and Shire contain many beautiful and fascinating buildings and Castles. We will go well beyond the surface and discover nearly 1000+ captivating years and I will share with you stories of times gone by whilst we marvel at amazing sites. In Old Aberdeen, we explore the buildings of the 15th Century University, a 12th Century Cathedral with an amazing heraldic ceiling and a dark secret. After we leave the city we wil visit Dunnottar Castle, one of the world's most iconic, impregnably built on a sheer headland. In Royal Deeside we visit Drum Castle, a stunning 13th Century Castle dating back to Robert The Bruce, and also Crathes Castle, a 16th Century masterpiece. All tours can be tailored to suit. Some attractions are subject to seasonal openings. Please contact us for details. Please note at Dunnottar there is a gentle slope from carpark to see it, but to go inside there is a long staircase.
