Right in the centre of the city is the Kirk of St Nicholas. The church yard has plenty of seating and is right next to the bus stops. Very close to all parts of Union street and surrounding areas

Every time I have visited Aberdeen, I have taken time to visit this cemetery; there is so much peace! People turn up with their sandwiches or coffee at lunchtime and sit on one of the many benches found between the trees and old graves
