Photos from Aberdeen

I only just discovered this lovely rooftop garden in central Aberdeen about a week ago. A friend tells me it’s fairly new – a year old? It’s just above the St Nicholas centre next to Marks & Spencer on Union St. There’s a children’s playground, seating areas, and a stage. They’ve done a wonderful job with the landscaping and the colours and textures along with the raised seating areas makes it pleasing to look at.


The church is the Kirk of St Nicholas.


The children are standing in front of Lang Stane on Dee St in this next photo. It’s a boundary stone from the site of the Battle of Craibstone in 1571 or part a stone circle or maybe both.


A lane. Aberdeen has lots of little lanes like this one.



I walked past this place today. It’s Make Aberdeen, a digital fabrication studio. You can become a member and print stuff on their 3D printer or use the laser cutter. It seems to be quite cheap and you can also use their space to work. I’ll have to go in and check it out.


And here’s my dinner. It’s a Pianta pizza from Pizza Express. I love Pizza Express. This pizza is their cheese-free pizza although I suspect they’ll make any without cheese if you ask. I never thought I’d get used to the idea of pizza without cheese but this one is delicious and I wouldn’t have it any other way now. I always pour garlic olive oil over the top.
