Aberdeen may be known as the “Granite City”, named as such because of the many buildings constructed with silver-grey granite, but don’t be fooled by its nickname. Aberdeen is also home to a number of beautiful landscapes including gorgeous parks, forests and beaches, perfect for a cosy winter walk.
So, what are you waiting for? Wrap up warm and explore the best of what Aberdeen has to offer with a peaceful stroll through one of these charming spots.
Tucked away next to Aberdeen’s thriving harbor, Footdee is a quaint village that was originally built for fishermen moving into the city. The cobbled streets and brightly coloured houses give the village an air of cheerfulness, a feeling that’s incredibly infectious as you walk amongst the buildings and imagine what life would have been like in the 19th century. We can’t think of many places that are as enchanting as Footdee, and with a variety of cafes selling delicious hot food it’s the perfect place to enjoy a winter walk.
Contrary to popular belief, beaches aren’t just for summer. There’s nothing like wrapping up, grabbing a hot chocolate, and taking a stroll along the beach – even during a Scottish winter! The sea air and beautiful views will easily make up for the lack of warm weather, and when the sun is shining you’ll be reminded just how lucky we are to have a long, sandy beach so close to home. A brisk walk or a game of volleyball will warm you up in no time!
As the summer disappears and autumn and winter roll in, we’re treated to trees that turn a wonderful copper colour and crisp air that leaves us feeling refreshed and revitalised. There’s no better place to enjoy this than Seaton Park, where carefully arranged floral displays and wide open spaces provide the perfect area for an idyllic wintry walk. This is also the perfect spot if you have young children, as the park also has a unique playground area – complete with old railway wagons – to keep the little ones occupied!
