Had a really interesting time visiting this museum which showcased the history of Aberdeen maritime history and the off shore oil industry. Was met with a very pleasant member if staff who explained the layout of the museum and gave us a plan of museum. You get great views of the harbour from the 4th floor and the scale model of the oil rig which starts on the ground floor and reaches floor 4 was really impressive. A good mix of odd and New which gives a great overview and history.

The museum itself is small and easy to get around. But the story and the memories it contains is huge. Telling the story of this proud military unit is also a walk through of military history from the napoleonic wars to today. But the reason why you MUST visit this place are the volunteers that guide you around. Almost all are former Highlanders who've served in previous conflicts. They are fantastic storyteller and are able to convey the history in a unique way. A unique experience!

We went for a tour with the Aberdeen Open Doors Day. It is not very well labelled but it is going to be transformed to be more visible in the near future. We had a tour of what the plans were and all the different types of trees there is a lot to explore and look at. There is also an Arboretum where they are deer roaming around. Great place for photos to have a picnic. The tour guide was brilliant and funny. You can also call and ask for a tour if need be :)
