An extraordinary symphony in grey, almost everything in Aberdeen is built of granite - even the roads. When drenched with sun and rain, the silvery stone has a fairy-tale shine; when under a cloud it can be a wee bit depressing. Brimming with civic pride, Aberdeen services one of the world's largest offshore oilfields.
Inverness is an excellent tourism destination. With its suspension bridges across the River Ness and old stone buildings, it is a pretty place well-known for its floral displays. Walk along the river banks and to the Ness Islands for an escape from the hustle and bustle of the shops. Cross the river on little bridges and visit Bught Park. The Floral Hall has a sub-tropical horticultural extravaganza with a small waterfall, fish and all sorts of plants and trees. Walk up the river in the other direction and see Ben Wyvis on the skyline. Inverness has an excellent museum and art gallery. Local history talks take place here. Eden Court Theater, situated near the cathedral, has events listings and incorporates part of the old Bishop's Palace and is said to be haunted by the 'Green Lady' ghost of a wife of one of the bishops who hanged herself there. Also check out art.tm which is an art gallery and studio. The Spectrum Centre has a cafe and is the meeting place for local clubs and education classes. Look out for Scottish Showtime music and dance performances during the summer.
This northern seaside village is a jewel in the Scottish Highlands with its charming pearlescent cottages resting quietly off the harbor.

Today's Aviemore has all the services expected of the main town serving a large area: plus the unexpected theater, swimming pool, dry ski slope, and go-karting track. The town has a railway station on the main Perth to Inverness line, and for enthusiasts and visitors, steam trains of the Strathspey Railway run a regular service on a restored branch line from Aviemore and Broomhill to Boat of Garten. The main reason for Aviemore's toureism lies in the Cairn Gorm Ski Area, eight miles into the mountains that form the south east skyline for the town. The Cairn Gorm ski area has recently seen major developments with the building of the Cairn Gorm Mountain Railway, a replacement for the old chairlifts that promises over time to bring about improvements to the mountain's environment to parallel those taking place in Aviemore itself.
