For locals, it helps to get a reminder of what’s on your doorstep. For visitors to Aberdeen, it’s often too easy to eat out on rich foods, or relax in your hotel room claiming you don’t know where the nearest gym is, or where you can source healthy meals.
At Skene House Apartment Hotels we want to help our guests maintain a healthy lifestyle. Aberdeen boasts a mix of extensive parks for a breath of fresh air, a walk, a run or a work out. This blog post boasts about the wealth of parks and gardens in Aberdeen.
