“Check out the weather before walking the prommenade”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2013

A great Sunday (or any other day) walk is wlking north from the harbour along the beach and returning by walking along the prommenade. Also a very popular activity for many locals and visitors alike. beware in the wrong weather it can be horrendous if caught out in a sudden 'storm' os make sure you are well prepared for sudden weather changes

“Bracing...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

With a gale howling in off the North Sea, it's hard to believe that Aberdeen was once a major seaside resort in Scotland, but the beach is still a nice place for a stroll. It's well swept by the tide, which comes right up to the sea wall and is therefore clean and reasonably litter and dog-poo free. There are shelters for you to avoid any rain/sleet squalls.

“Bracing walks - beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

You can't beat a New Year's day walk along Aberdeen beach to blow away the cobwebs. Every time I walk here the waves are different, the tide varies, the light strikes the sea through clouds or clear skies - so you never experience the same walk twice. I love my walks along the beach - only marred by imbeciles in summer leaving all their litter behind. How they can do that to such a beautiful beach is beyond me!
