Cove, Aberdeen

The city suburb has expanded in recent years and has evolved into a bustling community on the edge of Aberdeen city.

Amazing choice of two schools and both are a close walking distance from nearly everywhere and there is plenty of amenities. It’s a small friendly village close enough to the centre of town but far enough away to still feel part of a local community.

Have you been to Cove before? Did you know about its historic harbour or beautiful coastal restaurant?

Best in area

Nestled by the sea, with scenic views across the coast line and just a short drive from the city centre of Aberdeen, Cove has lots to offer right on its doorstep for places to eat and things to do. Our favourites include:

Cove Bay Hotel

Cove Bay Hotel

Built using local pink and beige granite, the Cove Bay Hotel has been at the heart of the Cove community for over 200 years. The Cove Bay Hotel is proud to serve locals and visitors passing through with locally sourced fresh produce – that is just as gorgeous as the views overlooking the sea.

We would recommend booking ahead and requesting a seaview – and be sure to try the Cullen Skink!

Doonies Farm

Doonies Farm

Covering 134 acres of land from Nigg Bay to Cove, the accredited Doonies Farm is ideal for a fun family day out. You can learn about animals and farming, as well as support the farm in helping to preserve rare and endangered native farm animals and work with the RBST to increase the population of these endangered animals.

With a picnic area on site, the farm is perfect for a Spring day when you can see newly born ponies, chicks and piglets around the farm yard before enjoying your lunch in the Aberdeen sunshine. Remember and say hi to Clucky the hen!

Harr Rock Coffee

Harr Rock Coffee

Often mistaken for the legendary Hard Rock Café, Harr Rock Coffee is a new addition to Cove. Owned locally, this busy and modern coffee shop has been designed with its customers in mind. It’s the perfect space where you can meet your friends over a delicious hot mug of coffee and cake, or grab a hot drink on the morning school run.

Haar Rock also caters for meetings and special events with bespoke menus and the space for professional and personal occasions.

Jump In Trampoline Park

Jump In Trampoline Park

Looking for a different and exciting thing to do with your family or friends? Look no further! Jump In, which opened in Aberdeen in 2017, is a trampoline park just a short drive from Cove, and has interconnected trampolines and wall trampolines, as well a foam pit, air bag, dedicated toddler jump space and Gladiator-style battle beam.

I-Candy Hair & Beauty
