There are plenty of other excellent dining options in the city, including Mercure’s own Blairs Restaurant and Soapie’s Lounge Bar. Blairs boasts award winning chefs, who work to create excellent dishes with local, fresh produce as well as the finest international ingredients.
Discover Aberdeen’s sporting heritage
Aberdeen has as rich history of sports, and allows visitors experience a number of different activities on offer. Whatever your preference, there should be something to suit you in the beautiful surroundings of Aberdeen. For golfers, the area is home to over 50 courses, and has a long tradition of golfing excellence. This includes Royal Aberdeen, the sixth oldest golf club in the world and the venue for the Scottish Open in 2014. The outward nine is believed to be one of the best golf links on offer anywhere. Aberdeen – both city and shire – is also famed for its Salmon and Trout fishing. Head out to the River Dee for the world’s top spring salmon fishing, or explore the River Don, famed for its brown trout. These can be the perfect, restful accompaniment to a stay in the area.
Explore the scenery
Aberdeen has both beautiful mountains and golden sandy beaches. One way to make the most of your spa days in Aberdeen is to explore this surrounding area. The Old Aberdeen and beach walking circuit takes in some of the city’s sights, including the cobbled streets, ancient buildings, university and cathedral. It also lets you travel through the picturesque riverside and woodlands, all on a surfaced path. For those looking for a more challenging walk, Mither Tap represents the finest peak on Bennachie. Get up to the rocky granite summit surrounded by the remains of a historic hill fort, and then return across the dramatic moorland and through some beautiful woodland.
Make the most of the spa
While you’re enjoying everything Aberdeen has to offer, you can also spend some time relaxing in Mercure’s spa. Perfect for following up an active day walking or exploring the coast, our ‘Time for Indulgence’ package includes a full day’s use of the spa’s facilities, combined with a selection of treatments which should help you to relax. If all this luxury sounds appealing, why not discover Mercure Aberdeen, and book a mid-week getaway for great rates on your stay.
