Ferryhill is a fine example of mid to late 19th century suburban expansion in Aberdeen. As such it gives physical expression to the rise of the growing middle classes at that time and their social aspirations. The area is separated from Aberdeen by the Howe Burn with access by the Hardgate. Ferryhill's built environment is characterised by villas, semi-detached and terraced residential properties as well as numerous late 20th century flatted developments.
Ferryhill is situated approximately half a kilometre to the south of the city centre. It extends from the western extremity of Fonthill Road; Devanha Gardens to the east, where it abuts Marine Terrace Conservation Area; the corner of Polmuir Road and Duthie Park to the south and the junction of Bon-Accord Street and Willowbank Road in the north.
