Fodor's Review

In the 19th-century development of Union Terrace stands a statue of Robert Burns (1759–96) addressing a daisy. Behind Burns are the Union Terrace Gardens, faintly echoing Edinburgh's Princes Street Gardens in that both separate the older part of the city, to the east, from the 19th-century development to the west. There are plans to build above the gardens and the railway lines, a move that will either be to Aberdeen's asthetic benefit or its disgrace, depending on your viewpoint.
