Silversea Luxury Cruises A ABERDEEN

ABERDEEN

The Granite City sparkles like silver in the Scottish sunshine, and there is over 8,000 years’ worth of history to dig into in this pretty city of cobbled streets and hunched cottages. Located far to the north of the British Isles, Aberdeen is third only to Edinburgh and Glasgow in terms of size. Shaped by its maritime location, granite foundations and offshore oil industry, today’s Aberdeen is a prosperous powerhouse, alive with arts and culture. View more

Surrounded by the Cairngorms Mountains’ sepia-hues – and the North Sea’s windswept coastline - Aberdeen was forged by the granite quarried from its earth. Local stone is everywhere from the Houses of Parliament to Waterloo Bridge – but arguably the finest examples of the material’s beauty are in the city itself. The barnacled spikes of Marischal College - the world's second largest granite building – and the grand turreted masonry of the Town House leave a lasting impression. Johnston Gardens add some colour to the city’s canvas, and you'll often spot wedding dresses floating among the blooming rhododendrons and ornate bridges. Aberdeen Maritime Museum takes visitors on a voyage through the region’s seafaring heritage, and North Sea oil exploration. Stop for a coffee and watch fishing vessels and trawlers toing and froing from the harbour, surreally mingling with city centre buildings in the unusually central harbour. Old Aberdeen is a fairy-tale walk of cobbled streets and eccentric stone houses where no stone is the same, while the Footdee fishing village, or 'fittie' as the locals pronounce it, consists of historic leaning cottages and ramshackle huts for the city's fishing community.

Balmoral Castle & Royal Deeside

Explore the Scottish home of the Royal Family and charming villages of Royal Deeside during this picturesque, full-day sightseeing excursion.


Aberdeen, River Dee Valley, Ballater, Free Time, Royal Station, Waiting Room and Carriage

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.5-hour drive to the picturesque 'Royal Village' of Ballater. This historic village is situated in the heart of the magnificent River Dee Valley, one of the most beautiful locales in Scotland, and within Cairngorms National Park. Upon arrival, some free time is made available for independent exploration. You can visit the newly-refurbished Royal Station, which houses an information centre, public library, restaurant and tearoom. In addition, the Royal Waiting Room and Carriage is a must-see. Following your visit, re-board your coach and proceed for a visit to Balmoral Castle.


Balmoral Castle and Estate

Although Royal Deeside abounds with beauty and contains a clutch of fine castles, its centrepiece is the Balmoral Castle and Estate. Balmoral has been one of the residences for members of the British Royal Family since 1852, when the estate and its original castle were purchased privately by Prince Albert, consort to Queen Victoria. Soon after the estate was purchased by the Royal Family, the existing house was found to be too small and the current Balmoral Castle was commissioned. Though relatively modern, Balmoral Castle is patterned after the style of a traditional Scottish castle. Built around 1854, this world-renowned castle serves as the private home of the Royal Family, who spend up to two months here each summer.


Audio Tour of the Castle, Grounds, Garden, Garden Cottage, and Ballroom

Upon arrival, take an audio tour of the Balmoral Castle, which is open to the public just a few weeks each year. Stroll through the lovely grounds and gardens of the estate, including the Garden Cottage. Here, Queen Victoria would sometimes take breakfast, deal with state correspondence and write her diaries. Next, explore the largest room in the castle, the spectacular Ballroom, with its many artefacts and works of art. Additional highlights to be seen include paintings, silverware, porcelain and the famous Balmoral tartans. Following your tour, some free time is made available to explore the gardens at your leisure, or browse the Royal souvenirs at the castle's Gift Shop.


Braemar, Free Time, Shopping, Lunch at Your Own Expense

Next, re-board your coach and head to Braemar. The parish of Braemar-and-Crathie has been a playground of kings and nobles of the land since the dawn of Scottish history. In the heart of the village lie the ruins of the great Castle of Kindrochit (The Head of the Bridge). During your visit to Braemar, some free time is made available for independent shopping and exploring, along with lunch at one of the local restaurants, inns or bakeries at your own expense. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.5-hour drive back to the pier.

Double-Decker Bus & Cinderella Castle

Discover the spectacular historical relics of Aberdeen and its surrounds during this immersive, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Aberdeen, Alford, Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen Angus Bull Statue

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive west to the growing, rural and vibrant village of Alford in stunning Aberdeenshire, home to the award-winning Grampian Transport Museum. On the approach to the village, a brief photo stop is made to photograph the famous Aberdeen Angus Bull, a life-sized statue that was unveiled by Prince Charles.


Grampian Transport Museum, Craigievar Express Steam Vehicle, Birkhall Steam Engine, Free Time

Your arrival at the Grampian Transport Museum is greeted by the curator or his deputy. Enjoy a welcome introductory talk and guided walking tour of this living museum. Along the way, learn about the Craigievar Express steam vehicle. Built by a local postman, it is one of the museum's prime exhibits. The museum also boasts an impressive range of other transport exhibits, from the travelling chariots of the 1800s to some of the fastest cars ever made. See the Birkhall Steam Engine, which comes from the Balmoral Estate, was bequeathed to the Museum by the Duke of Edinburgh and is 'steamed up' during your visit. Following your tour, some free time is made available to explore the museum at your leisure.


Vintage Double-Decker Bus-Ride, Craigievar Castle, Rare Antiquities, Historical Artefacts, Art

Next, travel back in time during a ride aboard a 1960s double-decker bus to the nearby Craigievar Castle, the family home and seat of the Clan Forbes for over 350 years. This fairy tale-looking castle, with its pink walls and array of turrets and towers, is said to be the inspiration for Walt Disney's Cinderella Castle. Built in the Scottish Baronial-style around 1576, this iconic tower house remains among the best-preserved and most beloved in Scotland. Its exterior remains virtually unchanged since William Forbes completed it in 1626. Your guided tour of the castle includes its cosy interiors, rare antiquities, and an impressive collection of historic artefacts and art, including Raeburns, armour and weapons. Afterward, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 50-minute drive back to the pier.

Fyvie Castle & Afternoon Tea

Experience the beauty and grandeur of one of the Royal strongholds of medieval Scotland during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Aberdeen, Royal Deeside

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately one-hour drive west for a visit to the Fyvie Castle, one of the original Royal strongholds that once formed a chain of fortresses across medieval Scotland. En route, pass through one of the most beautiful locales in the heart of Scotland, the magnificent valley of the River Dee. Rising high in the Cairngorm Mountains and running east to its mouth at Aberdeen, the river flows through some of Scotland's finest scenery. Midway, in the shadow of Lochnagar Mountain, lies the Royal Balmoral Castle, summer home of the Royal Family. Hence the name, 'Royal Deeside'.


Fyvie Castle, Private Art and Portrait Collections, Fine Furniture, Tapestries, Arms, Armour

Undoubtedly one of the finest castles in Scotland, Fyvie can trace its royal connections back to 1211, and William the Lion. Robert the Bruce held open-air court at Fyvie, and Charles I spent some years here as a child. Each tower of this magnificent Scottish Baronial fortress is traditionally associated with one of the castle's five successive families; Preston, Meldrum, Seton, Gordon, and Forbes-Leith. During your guided walking tour, you can see their influences today, from the medieval stones to the lavish Edwardian interiors. Marvel at the castle's abundant artwork, rich portrait collection and one of the largest private collections of Raeburns in the world. There is an equally impressive collection of fine furniture, tapestries, arms and armour to explore throughout the castle's vast chambers.


Art Conservator Talk, Art Preservation Demonstration, Prosecco, Afternoon Tea

Next, join in an expert talk with an art conservator and view a demonstration of art preservation. Following your guided tour of the castle, proceed to the historic Squash Courts. Here, you can enjoy the tradition of being lord or lady of the castle with a glass of Prosecco and Afternoon Tea, which includes finger sandwiches, small cakes, and scones with jam and clotted cream. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately one-hour drive back to the pier.

Glen Garioch Distillery

Explore the history and flavours of Aberdeen during this scenic and informative, half-day excursion to the Glen Garioch Distillery.


Aberdeen, Garioch Countryside and Valley, Oldmeldrum, Glen Garioch Distillery

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 50-minute drive through the stunning Scottish countryside of Garioch, (pronounced 'Geery') to Oldmeldrum, a traditional, rural market town dating back to the 9th century. Upon arrival, head to the Glen Garioch Distillery, nested in the sheltered heart of the Garioch Valley. Traditionally the finest barley-growing area of Scotland due to its mild climate, abundant sunshine and not too much rain, the Garioch Valley was once home to no fewer than six distilleries. Today, this valley cradles just one, which bears its name and dates back over 200 years. The renowned Glen Garioch Distillery has changed hands several times, and the current owners have had the distillery in their family since 1886.


Guided Distillery Tour

Since its inception, the Glen Garioch Distillery has been handcrafting a wide range of single-malt scotch whiskies that have won prestigious awards at international competitions. Glen Garioch malt is a light, clean malt, with spices and peat to give it some body. During your guided tour of the Glen Garioch Distillery, see time-honoured skills at work. Learn about the entire production process, from the malting through the storage of the barrels. Observe the process in operation, smell the wonderful, malt-like aromas and touch the natural ingredients. Production machinery to be seen includes the malt mill, which grinds the malt to a coarse grist powder, and the mash tubs.


Warehouse, Visitor's Centre, Whisky-Tasting, Gift Shop

Next, visit the warehouse, where 55-gallon casks are stored for a minimum of three years for blended whiskeys, and over eight years for malt whisky. Following your tour, proceed to the Visitor's Centre to sample Glen Garioch's award-winning Highland Single-Malt Whisky. Afterward, some free time is made available to browse the Gift Shop. Here, you can purchase bottles of blended and malt whiskies, including 10- and 15-year-old malts, and a tempting, 21-year-old whisky for connoisseurs. A wide range of other gifts is also available for sale. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach for the approximately 50-minute drive back to the pier.

Glenfiddich Whisky Distillery with Lunch

Indulge your senses with the exquisite beauty, flavours and traditions of the Scottish Highlands during this panoramic, full-day sightseeing excursion with lunch.


Aberdeen, Scottish Countryside Drive, Highlands, Speyside, Dufftown

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 1.75-hour drive into the wilds of the beautiful and tranquil Scottish countryside. This vast expanse of northern Britain hides many secrets, including inland lakes 'lochs' (such as the infamous Loch Lomond and Loch Ness), the exquisite scenery of the Highlands and true Scottish spirit in the form of Scotch whisky. Your drive takes you to Speyside, then on to the vibrant and thriving Highland village of Dufftown.


Glenfiddich Whisky Distillery, Tour and Tasting, Lunch

Known as the 'Malt Whisky Capital of the World', Dufftown is home to one of the world's most awarded single-malt Scotch whisky, 'Glenfiddich'. The first drop of spirit fell from the copper stills of this legendary distillery on Christmas Day, 1887. Enjoy a unique insight into this treasured beauty during a guided tour and tasting, and an opportunity to purchase this world-renowned, single-malt Scotch whisky to take home. Afterward, a two-course lunch is served at the distillery.


Speyside Cooperage Visitor Centre, Guided Tour, 4D Film Experience, Cask-Making Process

Next, re-board your coach and continue on to the nearby Speyside Cooperage Visitor Centre, home of the ancient art of coopering since 1947. Upon arrival, this 5-star, award-winning exhibition takes you on a journey from Acorn-to-Cask. Immersed in this 4D sensory cinematic film experience, savour the sights, sounds and smells of a working cooperage. From the viewing gallery, observe the master craftsmen at work whilst they make and repair casks against the clock. Utilising many traditional methods, the coopers are busy shaping, shaving and charring casks for what is an integral part of the whisky industry. Following your tour, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 1.75-hour drive back to the pier via the stunning Scottish countryside.

Highland Cattle and Crathes Castle

Explore one of the best-preserved castles in Scotland and a working cattle farm during this scenic and informative, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Aberdeen, Royal Deeside, Crathes Castle

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 45-minute drive through leafy Royal Deeside en route to Crathes Castle. With its fairy-tale turrets and fantastic gargoyles, Crathes is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved castles in Scotland, and was home to the Burnett family of Leys for almost four centuries.


Castle and Garden Tour, Free Time

Upon arrival, take a guided tour of this stunning castle. Along the way, see the Horn of Leys, which was given by Robert the Bruce in 1323.
