Holiday homes and rentals in Aberdeen

Enjoy a unique city stay

Holiday homes in the centre of the Granite City are the best option to enjoy the old part of town, close to the Citadel. For a more private accommodation, there are several options in the outskirts of the city, still close enough to the centre, where to enjoy fishing and golf. Within walking distance from the beach, some rentals offer cosy little spaces to enjoy the city and the sea alike.

The Grey Granite City

Glittering grey architecture is one of the main features of Aberdeen, lined with impressive Victorian buildings, elegant contemporary features and modern holiday homes with white interiors, stylish déco and splashes of colourful art pieces. Superb accommodation for couples, groups and families featuring comfortable rooms and lounging areas, well equipped kitchens and big windows from where to admire the greatness of the granite facades. In rentals outside the city centre, you can enjoy quietness in a private garden, have a gathering at the large patios and enjoy the outside sitting areas for summer BBQs.

The area and getting around

Discover a unique town

The port city of Aberdeen is located in northeast Scotland and it’s not unique because you can walk in daylight at 11pm but because the main street it’s lined with granite buildings that turns it into a unique architectural gem in Europe. This cosmopolitan and connected city features long sandy beaches, perfect for surfing, stretching to the dunes to the north and giant cliffs to the south. Discover the two old towns-Old Aberdeen with cobbled streets and where its first university was founded. The second old town is the fishing quarter of Footdee, locally known as Fittie. Little colourful cottages, gardens plenty of multicolour flowerbeds and eccentric decorations give the city its seafaring soul.

Natural Scottish beauty

As many other medieval cities, Aberdeen has a seemingly-random layout with the mile-long Union Street dividing the city centre. You can enjoy a stunning coastline, pretty seaside towns nearby, old distilleries, ancient castles around the area and natural rugged beauty by the cliffs. Maybe you are lucky and can spot a dolphin as the waters of Aberdeen Harbour and along the Banffshire is their favourite place to play! Enjoy a great getaway and choose outdoor activities that will turn your stay into a memorable one.

Travellers and activities

Aberdeen for architecture lovers

From the 18th to the 20th century, great buildings were constructed due to the prosperity of the town. Aberdeen it’s famous for its distinctive Neoclassical, Gothic and Scottish Baronial. But that’s not all! Medieval buildings use to be made with wood, but after several fires, the city decided to rebuild everything just using local stone quarried in and around the city. Sparkling buildings in the sunshine and gloomy on a cloudy day, but still impressive. After the 1960s, the stonework improved and now we can see ornately-carved granite such as at Marischal College.

Aberdeen for medieval castles lovers

Aberdeenshire is known as “Scotland’s Castle Country” because of its 260 castles. You can now discover 19 of them on Scotland’s Castle Trail. Aberdeen is the perfect base to explore the castles around the area in 6 days. You can tailor your own itinerary. Starting at Dunnottar Castle you can continue to Castle Fraser, near Sauchen. On the third day you can visit Fyvie Castle, followed by Duff House on the fourth. Leith hall and Braemar will be the last ones. You can even spend a night in one of them and celebrate a special romantic occasion or a family holiday! Pick your castle and feel like royalty!
