Approach to B9119 from Rubislaw Park Road
Approach to B9119 from Rubislaw Park Road
The tree belt ahead surrounds Aberdeen's famous historic deep granite quarry (long since closed, fenced off and disused) at Hill of Rubislaw. A future use for that impressive 'hole in the ground' has been under continuous consideration for decades without as yet any firm commitment to a redevelopment plan as a tourist attraction.
