Aberdeen is over an hour away from Banff but in the same circuit, a reflection of the size of many Scottish circuits. The Methodist church in Aberdeen is in the heart of the city and, like the city, has more of a diverse congregation than the other churches in the circuit. It also has close links with a church in Accra, Ghana, with regular visits between the 2 churches.

Marischall College, Aberdeen (the world's second largest granite structure)

We were able to share a lovely lunch of fresh salmon, direct from the quay that morning, with church member Michael Dyer who also showed us around the city. It was then time to catch the ferry that would take us further north to the Shetland District, and the next stage of our visit.
