Statement of Interest

Missing 1889, since replaced; relocated in late 20th century due to enlarging of traffic island. March stones mark the inner and outer marches (boundaries) of Aberdeen, defined by marked stones possibly dating from 1698. The original stones were replaced by the present stones, numbered 1-48, in about 1790, the remainder were replaced in the early 19th century. The outer marches are thought to be later than the inner marches.
