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 (including this stone), in about 1790, the next group were replaced in the early 19th century. The outer marches are thought to be later than the inner marches.
