Pitmedden House
This photograph shows the Victoria Monument located on a hill to the south of Pitmedden House. The Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route now runs between the two sites. The monument is conical in shape and well-constructed of granite rubble.

It features a granite engraved plaque with a representation of a sailing ship and the latin motto 'Per Perigulum Vivo'. The plaque reads 'Erected on the 50th anniversary of Queen Victoria's first visit to Aberdeen when she was received by George Thomson junior, Esq, The Lord Provost and afterwards MP for Aberdeen. Erected by Mr and Mrs George Thomson, Yost. Pitmedden 8th September 1898'.
