The ICE leaflet offers the opportunity to take a short walk around from the Harbour to Girdle Ness and go back in time to learn more about the development of the Harbour – from its establishment in 1136 by King David 1st of Scotland to the current day work for its expansion.

ICE Scotland’s Education and Inspiration Co-ordinator Alison Ward said: “According to the Guinness Book of Records, Aberdeen Harbour is the oldest existing business in Britain.

“This guide is a wonderful opportunity to learn more about the fascinating engineering developments which been made during this time – from the work of legendary engineers Thomas Telford and John Smeaton to the brand new construction underway today.”

Earlier this year, ICE Scotland, in partnership with Scottish Canals, produced a similar guide to Glasgow’s Forth and Clyde Canal, covering its engineering past, present & future.
