A stiff breeze was the order of the day for this spring re-visit to the beach at Aberdeen. Pittodrie, the home of Aberdeen Football Club, sits just behind the beach. On this occasion, a line of rig support vessels were waiting to seek safe harbour, as a storm approached. There’s always something interesting to see here, from marine traffic, through a rich cultural heritage to a thriving international business hub, not to mention nearby championship golf courses.
The sheer joy of the beach for Beth.
A windy day at the beach in Aberdeen.
This popular beach and esplanade is close to the centre of the city. It stretches all the way from the mouth of the River Don to the harbour. The distinctive groynes that you’ll see running across the beach have been erected to help prevent the sand being eroded. Behind the beach is an attractive wide grassy area, known as the Queen’s Links. Nearby are an amusement park, restaurants and a cinema. Aberdeen itself has thrived on the back of the oil industry, with all the facilities you might need.
A place to meet up.
