A look at Aberdeen as a holiday resort. The film looks at Aberdeen through the eyes of three groups of characters - a family with two young boys, a young honeymoon couple, and a Scandinavian sailor - and shows them against different backgrounds: the beach, the parks and golf courses, and the ballroom. It also explores the Dee Valley to Crathes, and Aboyne and Braemar with their Highland Games. Much of the musical accompaniment is provided by the carillon of St Nicholas Kirk.
