3 Mackie Place
This photograph shows No. 3 Mackie Place, Aberdeen, in around 1870.

The street was named after Robert Mackie, a skinner who was Convener of the Incorporated Trades.

At No. 6 Mackie Place there was a haunted house known as the 'The Castle' or 'The White House'. It was located to the south west of Nos. 4 and 5 next to the Denburn. It was the home of the Forbes family who printed the Castle Spectre magazine.

No. 6 Mackie Place was in time demolished to make way for Esslemont Avenue. Due to the demolition, the Forbes family moved across the Denburn to the property off Skene Street known as 'the Galleries' in around 1882. It stood in the ground to the rear of No. 1 Mackie Place and has also subsequently been demolished.

No. 3 Mackie Place is located to the east of Nos. 4 and 5, on the north side of the Denburn, and still stands today.
