March Stones

Several years ago, our club was made guardian of several March stones in our area. We were recently asked by the Burgesses of Guild of Aberdeen to report back up on their condition

March Stone 60 can be found in Jute Street

The March Stones are boundary stones - both inner and outer boundaries.


The inner March Stones mark the boundary of the crofts that ringed the medieval Royal Burgh of Aberdeen.  The outer March Stones define a much larger are known as the Freedom lands.


Aberdeen City Council has an informative leaflet which can be downloaded from the internet. 

Alan and Pat Pirie spent a morning visiting stones 55 to 62 which are all walking distance of the Northern Hotel.  Stone 56 can be found opposite the hotel on Clifton Road.
