NJ9105 : Rubislaw Quarry

taken 6 years ago, near to Mannofield, Aberdeen, Great Britain

Rubislaw Quarry
Rubislaw Quarry
A very deep hole and source of most of Aberdeen's granite. Since closure in 1971 it has filled with water and is 150m deep. It was sold in 2010.

Rubislaw Quarry is notoriously hard to view, and I got here by accident. Stopping to read my map on Queen's Road, I noticed a fence and "danger" signs. Suspecting I was by the famous quarry, I popped up the bank to the fence. In Summer it would probably be hard to see much from here.
