"If you want some space to relax by yourself..." Aberdeen Off The Beaten Path Tip by kierant

Aberdeen Off The Beaten Path: 65 reviews and 104 photos

Find St. Machar's Cathedral to the north of Old Aberdeen and head down the path into Seaton Park. The first thing you see are very formal rose gardens; carry on. When you reach the river, pause for a while and you'll see some pretty unspoilt wildlife which can include herons and other birds you wouldn't expect in the city. Carry on up the hill and to the right as if heading to Bridge of Don. Up the slope to the right of the main path is a beautiful and almost always empty walled garden, perfect for just relaxing in. Back to the path and you can continue to charming little Bridge of Don.
