Aberdeen Information

Aberdeen, Scotland in Gaelic is Obar Dheathain, Scotland's third most populated city. Also, the United Kingdom's (UK) thirty-seventh best populated. The official estimate of its population as of 2014 is 228,990.

Even though nearly 25 percent of its population was wiped out by the bubonic plague in 1647, this area has been continuously populated for approximately 8,000 years.

Various nicknames have been given the city, including the Grey City, Granite City, as well as Silver City, which allude to the grey granite quarries that at times look like silver sparkles because of granite's mica content. In the '70s, it earned the nickname Oil Capital of Europe and Energy Capital of Europe due to the Oil discovery in the North Sea.

Early settlements sprang up at the mouth of the river Dee and the River Don, which later became the city of Aberdeen in Aberdeenshire.

The city was economically transformed by the Royal Burgh designation it received from David I, who ruled as King of Scotland from 1124 through 1153.

The city boasts two major universities, the University of Aberdeen and Robert Gordon University, making Aberdeen an education centre in the northeast.

Aberdeen's traditional industries include paper making, fishing, shipbuilding, and the textile industry, which overtook the oil production industry and its seaport.

Aberdeen also boasts one the most active commercial heliports worldwide and its seaport is still the largest in Scotland's northeast.

The RHS or Royal Horticultural Society has awarded the Britain in Bloom award to Aberdeen ten times since its inception, which is a record. Britain in Bloom is a voluntary community clean-up campaign as well as a horticultural event. The Aberdeen Intl Youth Festival is another popular event in Aberdeen that attracts nearly 1000 youth performing art companies to the area.

The consulting firm, Mercer named Aberdeen to its top 100 livable cities in the World in '12, coming in at number 56 and number four in Britain. According to HSBC, Aberdeen is one of the eight UK "super cities", the only city in Scotland to be so named.
