Big hole that built Aberdeen for sale – £30,000


Over 231 years, a staggering six million tonnes were hewn from Rubislaw Quarry before the quarrying ceased in 1971, leaving a chasm almost 500ft deep on the edge of the city's plush West End.
But today, in one of Scotland's most bizarre property deals, the manmade crater is being put on the market – with a bargain price of only £30,000.
The seller, Bixen, an overseas-based company, is hoping the new purchasers will be able to turn the disused quarry into a tourist attraction or a leisure facility.
But yesterday, local property expert John MacRae, chairman of the Aberdeen Solicitors' Property Centre, said: "I take my hat off to whoever owns the quarry and is thinking they can sell it. I am very sorry to say that I think the appeal of this site is very limited."

It functions! And that's truly nice that you published this information ... I could not say the exact same for Samsung who is suggesting something they did not examination!
Happy brand-new year!
