Explore the city centre and learn about Aberdeen’s colourful characters on a free walking tour from TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice winner 2020 and 2021 Scot Free Tours.

Sure, we all know about the oil and the granite and the weather. But there is more to this city than that. There are stories that you will never have heard. Stories about death, pirates, wizards, infra-red telescopes, and Lord Byron. And more death.

SFT’s flagship history tour takes in the Castlegate, Marischal College, Provost Skene's House, Union Terrace Gardens and St Nicholas Kirk. You will see the highlights of Aberdeen city centre, while you find out about Aberdeen's social history, its quirky inhabitants and how it got to where it is today.

Scot Free Tours is the top-ranked tour provider in Aberdeen, collecting TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence in 2018 and 2019 and a Travellers’ Choice Award in 2021, with more than two hundred five-star reviews.

The tour lasts between one and a half to two hours and a half hours and starts at the Mercat Cross in the Castlegate. Tours are funded entirely by donations.
