Rubislaw Quarry, Aberdeen
Rubislaw Quarry, Aberdeen
The quarry that supplied most of the granite used in the houses of Aberdeen. It closed in 1971 and was said to be the largest man-made hole in Europe. As can be seen, it has since filled with water. The only public viewpoint is through a fence on the Queen's Road side. The buildings seen are oil company offices built in the 1980s.
