Edinburgh and Glasgow are two of the prettiest cities in the world. Aberdeen was bound to disappoint, but all the same... did it have to be quite so cold and grey and completely lacking in cafes?
There's only so long you can sit in the food court at a shopping mall. Try it. There's a reason they make the coffee so bad.
The real disappointment about Aberdeen was the men. Scottish men are normally 17% more attractive than the English, and neds are on average 24% rougher than chavs. Except for Aberdeen, where the sheer pitiless cold pebbledashes the faces and everyone is constantly eating fried food with the bored docility of cattle.
There's a harbour museum with a model of an oil rig.
