‘Looking at the Past – Discovering the Present’


‘Looking at the Past – Discovering the Present’

Cost: £75

‘Looking at the Past – Discovering the Present’ follows the old medieval route through the town beginning at the Castlegate and ending at Windmill Brae. Pupils see buildings and structures from different periods along the way and build up a picture of how Aberdeen has developed over time. What they see during the walk
sparks lots of interest, often associated with these sites:

  • The Castlegate
  • Site of the Carmelite Friary
  • Union Bridge
  • The Green
  • Tivoli
  • Site of the ‘Barn’ (used to house kidnapped children)
  • Music Hall
