Maritime Aberdeen
Maritime Aberdeen

Aberdeen has been at the centre of maritime industry and events in the United Kingdom for centuries. This most northerly of cities has been in its day the home of the first and finest of British clipper ships, the biggest Scottish fishing port and capital of the European offshore oil and gas industry. Although disadvantaged by its relative remoteness from the rest of the UK, the city has always looked to the sea from its livelihood, trade and sustenance. From fishing boats to ferries, from clipper ships to liners and from oil rig support vessels to the city's history of shipbuilding, all aspects of Aberdeen's rich maritime heritage are shown here in this unique collection of images from Aberdeen Maritime Museum. They show principally the work and ingenuity of the people of Aberdeen who, through their maritime enterprise, developed and sailed some of the finest ships in the world.

Pathfinder Aberdeen & Royal Deeside (Pathfinder Guide)
Pathfinder Aberdeen & Royal Deeside (Pathfinder Guide)

The Aberdeen and Grampian Tourist Board describes the area as 'Royal Deeside, Whisky, Castles and Coast' and it is easy to see why. The royal connection is most obvious around Balmoral, and there are castles and distilleries throughout the area. There are also spectacular coastal routes, such as Collieston and the Sands of Forvie, Cruden Bay and the Bullers of Buchan, and a route from Cullen along a disused railway that takes walkers past Bow Fiddle Rock. Magnificent views of the surrounding countryside can be seen from Scolty Hill, Tap o'Noth (site of an Iron Age fort) and Mither Tap. This fully revised edition includes brand new walks at Loch of Fyvie, Glen Tanar and Tarland.

Images of Aberdeen
Images of Aberdeen

For more than 100 years, the Evening Express and its sister paper, the Press and Journal, have been recording the lives of Aberdeen folk on camera. From the momentous to the mundane, all aspects of the city's character and development have been preserved for posterity. With the passage of time, even the most straightforward picture of a street scene takes on special significance. Hundreds of Aberdeen's streets disappeared as it was rebuilt over the course of a century, yet the memories of the people who inhabited them remain, ready to be rekindled by an evocative photograph. From local disasters to celebrity appearances, from holidays to the changing world of work, a century of life in the Silver City is presented here to educate and entertain. New residents and old will enjoy this proud look at one of Scotland's most dynamic cities.
