Bridge of Don is one of the largest suburbs of Aberdeen. A much sought after area to live, it has some of the best performing schools in Aberdeen City.
The dressed granite bridge over the Don is the last bridge on the Don before it meets the sea. The river is one of the major rivers of the North East of Scotland and has contributed to powering industry along the banks of the river for many years.
Around the area of the bridge is the Donmouth Local Nature Reserve, which has a rich and varied range of wildlife including salmon, seals and a variety of birds.
Bridge of Don is also well known for its golf and overlooks Murcar Links Golf Club and Balgownie Links, home of the Royal Aberdeen Golf Club and host to the 2014 Scottish Open.
Aberdeen’s premier conference and exhibition centre is also located in the Bridge of Don area of Aberdeen. The AECC is an important part of the City’s business and leisure infrastructure and brings in tens of millions of pounds into the local economy each year. When the new AECC is developed at Buckstone, the existing site will be redeveloped into a mix of residential and commercial properties.
