Silverhillock Farm
An image looking north east showing Silverhillock Farm. The property, through which flowed the Gilcomston Burn, was located at the junction of Westburn Road and Foresterhill Road.

Silver City Vault users Graeme Fraser and Joan Clark inform us that the farm was inhabited by the Rae family prior to the property being developed in the southwards expansion of the Foresterhill complex.

Joan's paternal grandparents, lived there before moving to Hazlehead, where her grandfather worked with Smith & Sons Nursery. Her parents moved in when they married in 1927.

The Royal Infirmary buildings can be seen in the background.

Silver City Vault user Philip Wright explains that in 1953 the farmhouse was used as a stable for a horse drawn cart that sold vegetables around the houses in the Midstocket area. As a young boy he would feed the horse when it reached his home at the top of Harcourt Road, beside St. Ninian's Parish Church (now Midstocket Parish Church).
