Description: Rubislaw Quarry. Aberdeenshire. View at the base of this granite quarry showing large blocks brought down by blasting. Quarrymen, and ladders resting on several huge blocks, indicate the scale. Note the large block on the right with a huge chain around it, presumably awaiting lifting by one of the several 'blondins' that cross the quarry but are not seen in this photograph.
