Hi... I have a young daughter who has been offered full time work in Aberdeen.

She will be renting and would like to know what areas are safe and have good public transport.

Hi there

Our guide to areas and suburbs in Aberdeen has a useful breakdown of the best expat areas in the city, including some information on safety and public transport. When is your daughter planning to move?

Hope this helps!

Have a look at the Inverurie area of Aberdeenshire. There is a good link to the city from the train station and regular buses from Inverurie to Aberdeen. It is a safe area but can be quite rural so a car is a must.

Inverurie has also seen recent development and as a town has all that a family needs including some good schools and new housing developments.

The new bypass (once it fully opens in 2019) will also give you good links out of Aberdeen.
