NJ5764 : Durnhill Quarry

taken 10 months ago, near to Portsoy, Aberdeenshire, Great Britain

Durnhill Quarry
Durnhill Quarry
This quarry exploited the rodded quartzite which makes up Durn Hill and outcrops on the shore at Portsoy. It is marked on the map as disused, and it certainly looks as if no-one has extracted anything from it for a long time, but there are piles of what looks like crushed rock for road surfacing, and the usual warning notices at the entrance say that it belongs to Aberdeenshire Council
