Post Thumbnail

Perhaps the city’s most coveted spot, Rubislaw Den is a rather picture-esque street.

One of its mansions sold for £3million this week, with its luxury and private land going to Fraserburgh man Paul Tait. 

It has served many families over the last few years, as these photos beautifully depict.
