O Lordy ~ I used to work at Foresterhill, and practically lived at the Prince of Wales.... :shock:

Coming fae the Shire o' the Deen I always found Aberdeen a grey and bleak place, a side from the occasional trip to the University area. Shame the nicer and more interesting areas are tucked away. When I'm visiting home I rarely see much of the place - just the train station and Union St before I'm heading out into the Shire. Might have to make a point of taking a stroll when I'm up in the summer.

Bra report fella :clap:

And would just like to add that you can get great photos of harbour and over Aberdeen by popping over to the elevated 1st hole at nigg bay there is a seat between 1st hole and 2nd tee probably for a rest as the first hole is bordering on a sub 2000 er lol :lol:
Beech walk at low tide from don mouth to balmedie is great in winter time and is around a 3 hour round trip. Could go all the way to Newburgh which is about same distance again but quite a slog on the sand and good quality bin liners are required to cover your boots while crossing the tidal burns :-x.
