60-second guide to Aberdeen airport
in its own head
"Aberdeen is the most important oil-producing city in Europe"
but more realistically
Technically speaking this is true, but far from it making the city a heavily industrialised one, what’s most striking here is the interesting architecture and vibrant social scene.
The atmosphere in Aberdeen is one that can only be found in a city where the economy, the education and the sense of well-being is thriving - one of cool, calm and casual ease.
Like all Scots, the locals are always willing to stop for a chat and give you a tip about something.
It’s not as cold in Aberdeen as you might think - temperatures generally average 4-12°C. What takes visitors by surprise is the length of the days. In the summer, daylight can last for 18 hours whereas in the winter, days can be as short as six hours long. Pack jumpers and sunglasses.
the local speciality
Holidays are not the time for diets and that’s a good thing because in Aberdeen, you can get deep fried mars bars, pizzas, haggis and macaroni cheese pies. Luckily, each of our hire cars has seat-belts with plenty of give.
Emile Sande and Annie Lennox are just two of the famous singers to have come from Aberdeen.

Aberdeen airport Q&A
Where are the car hire desks?
Collect your luggage and then head through to the arrivals hall where you’ll find all of the car hire desks.
What should I buy at duty free?
You cannot leave Scotland - in fact it’s practically law to do so, without a box of traditional shortbread. Stock up, and hide them when you get home.
Are there any cashpoints?
If you need some cash when you arrive, cash machines can be found before security outside the Travelex shop, or after security opposite Tie Rack.
Where's the best place to eat?
If you’re longing for one last taste of fine Scottish cuisine before your flight, then head to The Granite City for a range of home-cooked, good food.
The secret tip
If the weather’s dreich, dinnae let it get ye crabbit. In other words, if it’s drizzly, smile, it could be worse. Aberdonians have their own lingo and if you want to keep up, it might be worth getting a guide from one of the local shops.
Aberdeen airport the gateway to...
Distance: 7 miles
Aberdeen is also known as The Granite, or Silver City, due to the local granite which forms most of its buildings. Rich in Mica, the stone gives off a silvery, glittered look which makes for some great photography. Take a camera.
Cairngorms National Park
Distance: 41 miles
Home to the largest and tallest mountain range in Britain, the Cairngorms provides a breath-taking alternative to the urban metropolis of Aberdeen. Rental cars come with plenty of space, so pack your jumpers and a picnic for the journey - take a tissue, this one could be emotional.
Distance: 22 miles
No trip to north east Scotland is complete without a lungful of North Sea air. This harbour town on the coast is a perfect place to get it, as well as some local history at the museums followed by a belly full of freshly caught and cooked mussels.
