Aberdeen Overview

Aberdeen (Gaelic for mouth of Dee) is a city in Eastern Scotland. It is situated at the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don. Aberdeen is the 3rd biggest city in Scotland. It is the most important center in the North of GB, the sea port is the largest in North-East Scotland and Aberdeen’s heliport is one of the busiest commercial heliport in the world. Aberdeen is deemed to be the oil capital of Great Britain and some say Europe. The city is also known as “Granite City” or “Silver City with the Golden Sands” because most of the buildings in the inner-city as well as the University of Aberdeen are made of granite which is manufactured in the region and shines silvery in the sunlight.
Aberdeen has two universities: the University of Aberdeen (founded 1495, the 5th oldest in the English speaking world) and the newer Robert Gordon University. Therefore, Aberdeen is the educational center of the North-East.
