There is also excellent shopping, fine dining and an array of outdoor recreation such as hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking, bird watching, and more. There are beautiful beaches just minutes from the city for clamming, beachcombing, fishing, and whale watching, and there are many walks through the city that take in the glorious architecture and heritage of Aberdeen.
