Free Car Parks

Crombie Road, Torry

This is the closest free car park you’ll find to town. It is located just off Victoria Road. If your wanting to get to the city centre, it's still a 28 minute walk, or 17 minute bus ride.


Up Bucksburn way you can find three free car parks, on Greenburn road, Sclattie park and Auchmill road. If you find yourself in the North-East part of the city then these should appeal to you.

Donmouth Road, Bridge of Don

If you’ll be in old Aberdeen, then this spot should suit you. It’s not too far off Ellen road and by the water.

Station Road, Woodside

This can be found right by Johnston Gardens and is the only car park within this area of Aberdeen.

Dunmail Avenue, Cults

Located in South-West Aberdeen, just off North Deeside Road.
