Aberdeen is an ideal location for Littoral 2004 with a long coastal and maritime history, most notably the fishing industry and more recently as the Oil capital of Europe. Today coastal and marine research is a major activity of universities, research institutions, companies, consultancies and government agencies located both in and around Aberdeen City. The North East of Scotland is also fortunate in having some of the most beautiful and dynamic coastlines and beaches in Europe, a unique coastal heritage trail through the history of fishing and oil, as well as several maritime museums, harbours, and estuarine wildlife habitat. Inland Aberdeen is also blessed with being in close proximity to the beautiful landscapes of Royal Deeside and Balmoral Castle, castle country, golf courses, and the whisky trail providing an opportunity for sightseeing to enjoy the fresh air and scenery of Scotland.
We hope that you will join us in September 2004 for what promises to be a very rewarding experience and take this opportunity now to welcome you to Aberdeen.
