Where you’ll be

Footdee, Aberdeen, United Kingdom

The Old Coal Shed is in the historic fishing village of Footdee, and only a 50 metre walk from the beach and harbour, where you can watch the dolphins, seals and boats coming and going from the harbour . Take a brisk walk along the beach or just sit with your morning coffee. It is a quiet and peaceful village , yet only 5 minutes walk to the cafes and restaurants of the beachfront , and 15 minutes to the city centre.
The shed is situated in South Square , which is one of 3 squares , of old fishing cottages and sheds and with its own church set in the middle of North Square
Fittie is one of the most popular tourist areas in Aberdeen . There is no traffic in the squares , it is all old wider pavements for strolling around the village .
