A Weekend in Aberdeen

“The granite came from a small hill nearby” the taxi driver tells me. “The quarry was bought by a father and son who made a pretty penny selling it to build Aberdeen, now the granite comes from further afield.” At first glance the grey granite that adorns almost every building in the city gives Aberdeen a dull, monotone feel. Over the weekend though, it grows on me. Not least as much of the architecture is stunning. Maybe it helps that the sun hasn’t stopped shining since we arrived adding colour to the city.
