Caption: Limestone fron Broadland Quarry, between Drumdelgie and Broadland, Aberdeenshire.
Description: A dark-grained crystalline limestone fro the quarry and kiln one-quarter of a mile north-west of Broadland and three and one-quarter miles west-north-west of Huntly, Aberdeenshire. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7658. Broadland Quarry worked in a blue, medium-grained limestone with thin impure partings belonging to the Dalradian Portsoy Group of the Dalradian Supergroup (Precambrian) in age. The limestones are at least 30 feet thick and dip to the east at eighty degrees. Limestones in Aberdeen are relatively poor in economic value. Most are metamorphosed limestones of Dalradian age. The best known is the Deeside Limestone, in the south-west the Blair Atholl Limestone is of local importance. Further north are a series of outcrops of purely local significance.
