My wife and I visited Aberdeen a few years ago, and my limited memory of our visit is of a very grey city. As my plane landed, I could see the long beach, the river, and grey! Rows and rows of buildings and homes covered with local granite.
I reached Aberdeen late afternoon and went for a wonder around town – to catch the last light of the day. I walked the length of Union Street and on to the beach, where colour came back to the party.
