City of Aberdeen

The city of Aberdeen is the third largest in Scotland with a population of over 200,000. It is situated on the northeast coast between the mouths of the rivers Don and Dee.  Although traditionally part of the county of Aberdeenshire, the City of Aberdeen has constituted a self-contained unitary authority since 1996. From 1975 to 1996, Aberdeen was a district of the now defunct Grampian Region.
