Aberdeen is an ancient city in northeast Scotland which has served as a port for hundreds of years, currently as one of the principal ports supplying the North Sea oil industry. Ferries from Aberdeen serve Kirkwall in Orkney and Lerwick in Shetland. Aberdeen stands on two rivers, with the earliest part, Old Aberdeen, growing up south of the Don, and the newer harbour being built at the mouth of the Dee. Each is crossed by a small number of bridges. There is an airport and heliport at Dyce to the northwest.
Aberdeen serves as the junction or endpoint of several roads serving northeast Scotland: the A90 is the main route up the coast north and south. The A96 heads inland towards Inverness via Inverurie and Elgin. The A93 goes west to Braemar and then south to Perth. The biggest change to transport in the city in recent years is the building of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, which should remove some traffic from city streets and reroute it to the west.
