March Stone 38
This stone is located at the south side of the road from Ashtown, past Chapelbelts Wood, towards the site of Newhills Convalescent Home. The stone is near the bridge where Gough Burn issues from Moss of Brimmond. The stone is marked "38 ABD".

Described in 1698 as an earthfast stone marked by a saucer. Gough Burn was historically given as Golf Burn.

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.
