Aberdeen named by New York Times as top place to visit

The New York Times has named Aberdeen in a list of 52 places to go in 2019, citing the region’s dramatic coastline, historic castle trail and Royal Deeside as must-see attractions.

Chris Foy, chief executive of VisitAberdeenshire said, “It is fantastic to see Aberdeen included in the New York Times 52 places to go in 2019 and it helps to demonstrates our global appeal. American is a valuable market for Scotland, annually contributing £556m to the economy, so for the North-east to be the only UK location recognised is a real feather in our cap. The new Caledonian Sleeper carriages provides visitors with a unique luxury Scottish experience, and one they can continue when they arrive in the Aberdeen region thanks to the broad portfolio of high-quality visitor experiences.”
