March Stone 1 (colour)
A colour image of March Stone 1. It is set in carriageway, near the kerb at 79 Hardgate. It is marked "1 ABD".

It was described in 1525 as "ane gret grey stane, with ane sawssir..." It was still marked with a saucer in 1698 but a new stone marked ABD was in place by the late 18th century.

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.
