Scotland's third largest city, Aberdeen nicknamed the Granite City, has been settled since at least 8,000 years ago, when prehistoric villages lay around the mouths of the rivers Dee and Don.Â The oldest granite building in the city is the 15th-century St. Machar's Cathedral. The St. Andrew's Cathedral is the Mother Church of the Episcopal Church in the United States. While Aberdeen was under English rule, Robert the Bruce laid siege to Aberdeen Castle before destroying it in 1308 retaking the city for the townspeople. The Christmas Star or the Star of Bethlehem, which revealed the birth of Jesus to the Magi and led them to Bethlehem, symbolizes hope and good fortune.
