Great Scot: Free Walking Tour of Old Aberdeen

For over five hundred years, Old Aberdeen has been one of the great centres of learning in the North of Scotland. There can be no better place to celebrate Aberdeen's greatest thinkers, scientists, explorers, inventors, writers and gardeners (yes, we do mean gardeners).

We'll explore the hidden places in this historic burgh, to tell the stories of some great Scots whose achievements did not get the recognition they deserved.
