3. Dolphin watching at the battery

On a clear day, make sure you head down to the harbour to try and spot some dolphins. Aberdeen is quite famous across Scotland for being a well-known dolphin watching spot, but you do have to be in a bit of luck to see them. Even if you don’t, it’s a great place to sit and take in the fresh air.
