Fittie is well worth a look. Perched at the tip of the harbour its 20 minutes walk from the city centre. Fascinating....folks must have been a lot shorter in stature when the properties were built aeons ago! Once you've had a look around you can wander the length of the (very long) esplanade and beach. A great day out.

Easy to stroll around. Interesting look at how the fishermen and their families used to live. Wear your winter clothes, it can be breezy. If you're lucky you will sight dolphins as well.

We were lucky to have a bright sunny day in February so decided to have a walk out from the city centre. Fittie is a gem of a place to visit with little pathways around the rows and courtyards. Like stepping back in time.

Having enjoyed an excellent brekkie nearby, we strolled on to Fittie. It's a great way to pass the time strolling through this old fishing village. If you want more info there are great videos on You Tube.

What an interesting journey back in time to when Aberdeen was a thriving fishing port. Lovely terraced houses exuding messages of friendship are a must visit when in Aberdeen. It was a somewhat surreal but most enjoyable experience.

There are some quaint houses with picturesque gardens. Look out for the weather rock (a particular highlight).

Had always wanted to visit this old fishing village. Eventually did when I returned to the area. Very quaint village, some modernised, but lots of originals

Recommend for a slow stroll around a typical North East fishing village of over a hundred years ago. The houses are mainly stoutly built dwellings, many of which have been modernised internally, but still show their original character on the outside. Once the home of fisher families, many are now owned by artistically minded people who have retained the original... More
