March Stone 4
This stone is located at the bottom of the steps at the side of what used to be The Short Mile Public House. The close proximity of stones 3 and 4, and them being confused for milestones, is understood to account for the name of the bygone pub.

The building at 109 Great Western Road has been converted into flats.

In 1698 described as a saucer stone in a dyke, whilst in 1780 as "a large earthfast stone upon the outside of the North dyke of Pitmuckston...". The stone is marked '4 ABD'.

A slide of this image was kindly lent to Aberdeen City Libraries by Colin Johnston so that we could create a digital copy for public use.

The image was taken in the early 1980s when Colin worked as a teacher at Bridge of Don Academy. He led several current and former pupils, and staff members in an investigation into the location, physical condition and public knowledge of Aberdeen's historic boundary markers.
