Depends what you like!?

Are you into museums/culture etc or just interested in good pubs and clubs?

Go Karting out in Bridge of Don - not the best but still fun.
AECC - Bridge of Don - prob some something on there.
Union Square - Big shopping centre with lots of decent retraunts
Bonacord - Shopping centre....
Union St - Main street with lots of pub/clubs off the side streets, Bon Accord, Belmont, Back Wynd, Windmill Brae, Justice Mill etc etc

Most of the pubs down by the docks are a bit shite.... I got punched by a barmaid last time I ventured down there

Fri night.... places to go...

Soul, Paramount, Babylon - if you like girls that look afterthemselves but are a bit full of it

Some of them places on Justice Mill may be like that too.

Justice Mill Inn for cheap beer and a slightly rougher crowd.. Not Rough rough, just rough girls

Other places:

Espionage: Big place, not entry fee, few different floors to cater to different tastes... top floor is where the black folk hang out

There is HEAPS of clubs though... i just cant remeber all there names

Liquid - (i think) - young folk girls.... they have decent mid week nights etc

Studenty Types can prob be found on Belmont Street. Hogs Head, Wild Boar, ma Camerons, Tripple Kirks etc etc

If there is snow - you can maybe go skiing or boarding (if you do that). Or there is the dry ski slope down at Garthdee.

If I was home I'd come meet you for a pint but I'm away so... er...

The beach used to be worth a look but not reall sure whats still there. I know there is still a cinema, bowling Alley, Amusment park, Arcade and the beach itself but unsure what pubs and shit are still there.

Surfing (wind) - baltic, but lots of folk do it.
Golf - LOADS of courses, new TRUMP one etc
Football - Aberdeen FC, but they are mince these days
A tour of sorts out Royal Deeside, loads of Castles, Mountains and what not near by (Cairngorms etc)

AK is the Museum still open that has the North Sea Oil & Gas stuff in it? Think it may be called the maritime museum actually?

That was worth a look see, good Piper Alpha info in there which was worth a read although very sombre as you can expect!

Look at the boats

Get pished!

Err, thats about it!

You'll struggle to find sheep in Aberdeen, probably have to venture 15miles out to find one

You could always come to Stonehaven (15 mins away) and try one of the world famous battered mars bars. Check out Dunottar Castle, visit one of the best pubs in Scotland and sample some of their beers...

Well this thread was a waste of time. 12 hour days minimum working, maximum of 20 hours twice. Less than 5 hours sleep a night with 2 of them being 3 hours have left me totally bolloxed.

All I can say about aberdeen is the premier inn and the engine room of the boat were great. The rest I didn't see in day light.
