Aberdeen Clan

Nicknamed the ‘Granite City’ due to the number of buildings constructed in the area from the material, Aberdeen is Scotland’s third-largest city and the largest in the north of the country.

The area of Aberdeen is said to have been settled for at least 8,000 years and a number of Scottish clans can claim to have a connection to the city – with numerous popular castles located within the greater Aberdeenshire area.

For anyone without an official clan crest or tartan, the Aberdeen equivalents are a great way to represent your heritage if you have a connection to the area. The city’s motto and crest have a rich history with the tower featuring on the city crest representing Aberdeen Castle, which was once situated in the area of Castlegate within the city. The motto, “Bon Accord”, translates as ‘Good Harmony’ and is believed to be linked to a masonic poem where the phrase was used as a password when Robert the Bruce and his troops laid waste to the aforementioned Aberdeen Castle.
