Scrapbook: The Granite City
Aberdeen, Scotland

Union Street and bagpipes

The main high street in Aberdeen is Union Street. Along here you can find shops, restaurants, cafes and bars. There are also statues dotted throughout the city centre. One of these is of Edward VII and is situated on Union Street. Every day there is a man playing his bagpipes by that statue. Although I am not the biggest fan of the sound of the bagpipes it is nice to get into the Scottish atmosphere a bit as we walk past him on our way down Union Street.
