We stayed in Aberdeen last night and after a bit of a struggle with directions, parking, and lugging bags up four flights of stairs, checked into our penthouse Airbnb apartment. It was ultramodern and very nice.
Aberdeen is a huge port city and we were only a few blocks from the harbor. Before touring the museum we wandered around viewing some of the huge and unique cargo haulers and the ferry to Shetland.
We arrived at the easternmost point of Scotland facing the North Sea and the Scottish Lighthouse Museum. The display of optical glass and memorabilia was awesome as well as the lighthouse itself.
