The Village of Footdee: The small 19th Century fishing village of Footdee, a conservation area, can be found at the mouth of Aberdeen Harbour and is accessed via the Beach Esplanade of Aberdeen City. North and South Square were built in 1810 to rehouse local fishing families and harbour pilots. Pilot Square was added a few years later. Designed by renowned City Architect John Smith, also the architect of Balmoral Castle, the fronts of the houses look inwards, each with its own unique and picturesque ‘shed’ and garden. This design provides shelter and seclusion and promotes a strong sense of community. It is a mixed community, from singles and young families, professionals and skilled workers, to retirees and the descendants of the original fishing families. There is an active community development trust, who have acquired the old gospel hall recently to renovate and open as a community centre. The Mission Hall holds Sunday services and monthly coffee mornings. 10 minutes from Aberdeen City Centre, with a regular bus service, it is a charming unique area, where neighbours look out for each other, and where everything is on your doorstep - beach, children’s play park, restaurants, leisure centre, gym, cinema, supermarkets and shops.
