Welcome to the Energy Capital of Europe!

One: oil-abundant Aberdeen is situated between two rivers: the Dee and the Don. That means lots of shore line.

Two: many of the buildings here are made with mica-rich granite from local quarries. That means lots of silvery-grey structures.

Now put those two facts together and what’ve you got? The Silver City with the Golden Sands.

But wait. There’s more.

Property to rent in Aberdeen

Tenements made of – you guessed it, granite – make up most of the property to rent in Aberdeen. Old Aberdeen to the north and Footdee to the east are where you’ll find primarily cottage-style properties to rent. To the west, in Broomhill Road, you’ll find penthouses and apartments. But if Aberdeen flats aren’t your cup of tea, maybe the countryside would suit you better, in which case Stonehaven might interest you. Aberdeen also has a goodly number of suburbs that are complete with their own shopping centres – no need to commute into the city for your household needs.

We could go on and on, but if it’s a local property pro you’re after, take a gander at our Lettingweb Agent Directory. Aberdeen letting agents are wonderfully helpful at finding the ideal property to rent in Aberdeen based on your particular needs.
