“Interesting but just for a stroll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I saw this on trip advisor before visiting Aberdeen and we ended up going at the tail end of a tour which was mostly outside the city. While it was interesting, this is a 10-15 minute activity maximum and you really need someone (or perhaps some literature on it) to explain the history to you. Otherwise you'll be wondering why this neighborhood is on here. It wouldn't be at the top of my list as a must see.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Whether it's sunshine or showers it is lovely to walk along the beach at the south end of the promenade, climb the stairs, past the children's play park and then along the tiny streets of Footdee "Fittie".

“A little gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Took an early morning walk down Union Street then on to Beach Boulevard before hitting the beach and taking a right past the pleasure mile. Footdee is at the end of the prom and is a delightfuly quirky trendy retro village. Tiny fishermans cottages and huts some of which are decorated in an naive folk art kind of way. We spent a very pleasant half an hour exploring before heading back to our Hotel on the Green for breakfast.

“Beautiful on a sunny day with gorgeous beachside surrounds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This place is great to see when the weather is nice, it has everything one expects of seaside, quaint fishermen's cottages, beautiful beaches, little coffee shops, kiosks and boutiques not too far away, running trail by the beach, and so on. Don't miss out on cute Old Harbour Master's house in the shape of lighthouse, and the new Maritime department building which is also modelled on a lighthouse and even looks like one from a distance from the beachside. Cafe wise, Sand dollar i think it was called looks cute, and they had live jazz on a Friday night (we didn't book and couldn't get in), Silver Darling is the top notch and bit more pricey establishment by the Old Harbour Master's house and the menu looked fab, fish based and with spectacular view over the port/harbour. Take your time checking out the cottages, a lot of them have fab displays in the windows, with antique dolls, sailor themes arrangements and so on. Really enjoyable visit (allow an hour at least, or more if you are eating there).

“Cute”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Cute little fishing village very pretty takes a matter of minutes to walk round tho so would advice for it to b something you do as well as something else and not plan to stay the whole day if you visiting Aberdeen as you may be disappointed
