Description: Kemnay Quarries, Kemnay. Aberdeenshire. General view of surface working in grey muscovite-biotite granite. Shows pit-like form of quarry 122 m. deep while above on the skyline is a large waste tip. A light railway network is seen with several bogies used for transporting stone. Adjacent to the railway is a stockpile of kerbs and setts (cassies). A large crane is seen on the edge of the pit while a dismantled crane can be seen near the railway. Right through the photograph in the centre is a 'blondin' lifting cable.
