Aberdeen City

A sizeable industrial estate of Aberdeen City, Altens lies immediately to the north of Cove Bay, 1¼ miles (2 km) southwest of the headland of Greg Ness. Once a fishing hamlet, with a harbour at Altens Haven, there are now large and architecturally significant offices of several oil companies located here, including the UK exploration and production departments of Shell (1975) and Total (1978).
