Old Aberdeen is situated in the north east of Aberdeen city centre, Scotland and was for a long time nearly isolated at the edge of the city.
From the early 13th century it was the centre of the doctor’s, a influencing group of bishops. Nowadays, the centre is rich in historical buildings, a few are dating back to the Middle Ages and are built in the locally grey granite.
Old Aberdeen is effectively the main campus of the University of Aberdeen. To the north of the university you can find St Machar’s Cathedral and Seaton Park. South of King’s College Chapel lie the Powis Gates and the entrance leads to the University dormitories.
