Mercat Cross, Castle Street, Aberdeen
Mercat Cross, Castle Street, Aberdeen
Erected in 1686, the mercat cross was repaired in 1821-2 and moved to its present site in 1841-2. One column had to be replaced in 1995-6. This is a most impressive mercat cross incorporating very fine carvings. Behind the cross, we are looking down the whole length of the mile long Union Street. The mercat cross is a Category A listed building. LinkExternal link
