Help needed re trip to Aberdeen
11 replies 2.5K views
Would really appreciate some advice from the MSEs in Scotland. Will be travelling to Aberdeen via Glasgow airport for an interview in early Feb and would appreciate some info on the best way to get from Glasgow to Aberdeen. Also some recommendations on accommodation near the University. Will have an afternoon & evening to spare so ideas on somewhere to eat/drink/visit would be great too. Thanks

the train is best.
I haven't lived in the city for many years but there are lots of pubs/restaurants along and around Union Street. Maybe have a look on Trip Advisor for up to date recommendations? Which university is it? Depending on the dept and the Uni the campus is in different areas of the city.
Good luck. I have very happy memories of my time up there.
Would recommend upstairs kilau cafe in the high street on the aberdeen uni campus for lunch/coffee, I go there at least once a week. If you arrive by train you will come into the union square shopping centre which has all the usual chain restaurants. All the students drink in the bobbin mill on king St. but there is also the Machar bar on campus. A lot of people don't realise Aberdeen has a lovely beach with nice cafes and a cineworld if it's raining, not far from the uni.

There are direct fights to Aberdeen from several airports in England.

In addition, a number of the Stagecoach/Country buses will stop at the Airport and Foresterhill Bus Port, which is only a minute or so's walk from Suttie.
