Bieldside

Bieldside is a leafy, residential suburb of Aberdeen, situated approximately six miles to the west of the city centre on the route to Royal Deeside.

This prestigious suburb is one the most sought after postcodes in Aberdeen and along with the neighbouring suburb of Cults is the wealthiest area in Scotland.

As well as its own amenities, Bieldside benefits from easy access to the amenities in the neighbouring suburbs of Cults, Milltimber and Peterculter, in addition to all of Aberdeen’s amenities, which include shopping malls, leisure and recreational facilities, parks and gardens, cinemas and theatres.

For the outdoors enthusiast, the open green spaces of Royal Deeside offer a range of activities for all ages and Deeside Way also passes through Bieldside.
