Looking for something special to do with dad next Sunday? We’ve done the hard work for you and created a list of our top activities happening around Aberdeen to make your dad feel special.
1. Aberdeen Football Club Father’s Day lunch
Is dad footie mad? Why not treat him to a special two-course lunch at Pittodrie with an exclusive tour of the stadium. Find out more here.
2. Dolphin spotting on a harbour tour
Give your dad an unforgettable experience with dolphin spotting from the city’s harbour. You’ll be able to get a close look at these beautiful creatures playing and feeding at the entrance of the harbour and learn more about the history of the area, plus some tours even come with fish and chips! Book your spot for Sunday here.
3. Treat his tummy to some delicious dining
Aberdeen has a superb selection of restaurants for you to choose from with Miller & Carter serving delicious steaks and Nick Nairn’s Bar and Café bringing authentic artisan pizza to the city centre – check out this vlog from The Youngs if you don’t believe us.
BUT… sometimes the best ideas are the simple ones and, in the end, your dad wants to spend some quality time with you. From grabbing a quick coffee to treating him to a nice meal, we have the right place for you. Check out our selection of places to eat and drink.
4. Challenge him to paintballing
Let your dad explore his inner warrior with a day of paintballing. It’s highly energetic, provokes tactical thinking, allows you to test your aim and most importantly – have fun! What more could you ask for? For dads, it’s a great chance to give their usual schedule a time-out and enjoy a day with family and friends.
5. Can’t spend the day with dad? Treat him instead!
