About Aberdeen

Aberdeen, located in North East Scotland, is the country's third largest city with a population of approximately 240,000. Known as the Granite City, Aberdeen is one of Europe's oil and gas capitals, servicing the hundreds of oil platforms in the North Sea. It is also a fairly important fishing port and a major ferry terminal for sailings to and from Orkney and Shetland. Aberdeen's coastal location means there is three miles of sandy beaches right in the city.

The city is served by an international airport with direct flights between Aberdeen and Amsterdam, Belfast, Bergen, Cardiff, Copenhagen, Dublin, Gdank, Geneva, London, Manchester, Oslo, Paris, Riga and Stavanger amongst others.

You might find a private transfer more convenient, particularly if you are travelling as part of a group and/or with a lot of luggage. The advantages of this are; door to door service, no luggage restrictions, often cheaper than planes and trains, superior leg room in our cars, MPVs and minibuses, some with reclining seats, and you can see the sights along the route too if you would like to make a tour out of your journey. We ca provide 4, 6 & 8 seat vehicles, and a box luggage trailer can be attached on request for those travelling with a large amount of baggage or sports equipment, such as golf clubs, surf boards, skis etc.
