Aberdeen is known for its historic centre and unique atmosphere and is considered as one of the nicest cities in Scotland. The city is also known as the "Granite City", due to its large amount of grey granite used in the buildings during the 18th till the 20th century. Depending on the light, the buildings appear silver due to their composition. The best example, and a tourist highlight is the Marischal College building currently home to the Aberdeen City Council, however, many buildings made of grey granite can be found throughout the city. Aberdeen has several green parks and has won the UK's "In Bloom" competition ten times. The city is also a shopper's paradise, with large shopping streets and centres. When you visit the area make to visit the nearby city Inverness which is home to the infamous Loch Ness Monster.
