    I love tiny and efficient airports, and ABZ is both small and extremely well organised.

    Must Visit: Glen Tanar Natural Nature Reserve: a darting red squirrel or an acrobatic Scottish crossbill might be above your head as you wander through ancient trees here!

    THINK YOU'RE HARDCORE? You know you're in Scots country when a guy walks past you wearing t-shirt and shorts at a snow covered airport...

    Probably the smallest UK airport that I have flown from bar the Isle of Man. Staff are friendly but during busy times allow time to go through security. I had a long line

    ...and let's not forget that despite all the so-called investment in the airport, passengers still have to queue outside to board the plane come wind, rain, snow or hail.

    The airport which makes Aberdonians embarrassed. Badly run, often rude staff who enforce ridiculous rules which even the experienced traveller has never encountered anywhere else in the world.

    Security queue times are a crapshoot - if it's not busy, you sail through in 1-2 minutes. If an international flight is scheduled for departure though, that's when it takes forever.

    Awfully organised queues at the baggage drop off. Staff could apologise for the wait after standing the enormous queue. Never again.

    If you have time for a pint before takeoff, the Granite City outside the security check is a couple of notches above The Globe inside.

    I have seen the airport change from a local airstrip in 2005 to a international airport to be this year, ever time (16 times by now) a step better, keep on developing.

    If the queue to the security gates is unexpectedly long, try the priority security gate. Costs just 4 quid and you will be through in a breeze.
