Footdee - A small fishing village in Aberdeen, Scotland

My sister and I decided to explore Footdee today. You can walk there from Union Street, but we decided to drive to Codona's and walk from there. You can park along Esplanade or in the parking lot at Codona's and walk along the beach boulevard (turn right after you cross Esplanade walking toward the beach) until you reach Footdee. It was about a 10 minute walk to get there from Codona's.

"Footdee (pronounced Fittie) is a small fishing village at the mouth of the Dee and Aberdeen harbour, long since swallowed up by the expansion of the city. The village dates back to medieval times but the fascinating present day cluster of cottages was laid out by influential Aberdeen architect John Brown to rehouse the cities fishermen in 1809. The walk to it passes the fringe of the busy modern harbour and returns via the city beach." - From (and for more information)


I like their gate
