“Quaint”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Visited this location on a lovely Saturday in June. It is tucked away between the river Dee and the industrial section of the harbour. A walk south along the esplanade will bring you to it. It is very quaint and some of the "cottages" are decorated in a bizarre manner. Look out for the Moose warning sign. Well worth a visit.

“Lovely old fishing village”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Even though it's quite close to the industrial zone of Aberdeen harbour, the little village is a really nice place to go for a walk around, see the old light house from and enjoy the scenery. Well worth it.

“Interesting but just for a stroll”
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”
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”
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.
