A great walk but weather dependant.

This is a good long walk from one end to the other. No matter when you go, you always seem to catch the breeze from cooling in summertime to bracing and biting in winter time. The... read more

Love walking down Aberdeen beach with family and friends. 9 out of ten times in Aberdeen, you will need to wrap up warm.

It's a nondescript beach which looked clean and accessible for the esplanade and the other attractions. I was there as it was the 01:01:16 so had to be experienced. Would I go back??? No

There is a nice stretch of sandy beach which looked to be well maintained. Even in November there were quite a number of walkers. There is a dog free area but also plenty of space for dog walkers. There did however seem to be a long list of what you were not allowed to do both on the beach and... More
