Great Western Road

Great Western Road Conservation Area is a good example of a late 19th century residential Aberdeen suburb built up around the major route into the city from Deeside to the west. There are a number of important, substantial, good quality houses on Great Western Road itself and the designation concentrates on this primary road.

Additional streets that run perpendicular to Great Western Road were also included as they contain a large area of residential development of a character and quality that is uniquely 'Aberdeen' with fine, well-proportioned, granite terraced houses.

This is a sizeable Conservation Area centred on Great Western Road from Mannofield Water Treatment Works in the west, to Nellfield Cemetery in the east.
