Aberdeen and the Northeast Sights

Rosemount Viaduct

  • Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Updated 10/08/2013

Fodor's Review

Three silvery, handsome buildings on this bridge are collectively known by all Aberdonians as Education, Salvation, and Damnation. The Central Library and St. Mark's Church date from the last decade of the 19th century, and His Majesty's Theatre (1904–08) has been restored inside to its full Edwardian splendor. If you're taking photographs, you can choose an angle that includes the statue of Scotland's first freedom fighter, Sir William Wallace (1270–1305), in the foreground pointing majestically to Damnation.
