is a small, village-like area of Aberdeen
and is actually part of one of Europe's
biggest suburbs, Bridge of Don
Located north-west of Aberdeen City Centre, Danestone is a relatively new area of Aberdeen. The area was once all farmland until about 20 years ago when Danestone Primary School and lots of detached, semi-detached houses and bungalows were built.
The name Danestone came from the name of the farm, Danestone Farm.
