Auch wenn der Hafen von Aberdeen primär ein Industriehafen ist, so lohnt es sich dennoch, dort einfach mal vorbeizuschauen und das geschäftige Treiben zu beobachten. Geprägt ist der Hafen vom Offshore-Business. Fast rund um die Uhr werden die Versorgungsschiffe für die Ölplattformen draußen in der Nordsee beladen, so daß man, wenn man sich für Schifffahrt interessiert, hier immer etwas geboten bekommt. Auch die Fähre zu den Shetland- und Orkneyinseln legt hier ab.
