A whistle-stop tour of Aberdeen's historic medieval market place


A new mini-tour around the historic Castlegate

Starting at the Mercat Cross, this is a whistle-stop tour of the main Castlegate area, describing the buildings and their earlier sites on the Salvation Army side of the street round to Blackfriars pub.  Includes the tale of Aberdeen Castle and Bon-Accord; Francis Peacock, Aberdeen's first dancing master; the development of the Sally Army and their impressive citadel; the pie men and street traders who were legends in their own time, and many more new stories in this updated tour.

Reasonably suitable for wheelchair users/ mobility scooters, though the flagstones are rather bumpy.
