Yeah, city centre is fine, west end most expensive city centre area. Aberdeen isn't the cheapest place to rent due to the oil but there's no shortage of properties. The penhouse in my block is up for rent at the moment I think.

Burnett wrote: Subterranean Structure

The main floor area is estimated to be approximately 5625 square feet with the entire outer structure having walls approximately 10ft thick.

The mezzanine floor comprises 9 rooms extending to approximately 3437 square feet.

Jawdropping!

Not sure what you'd do with that much underground space though!

More pictures and bunker details here and here.

Don't move to Fraserburgh. It's a heroin filled dump and you will probably commit suicide after a day listening to the doric accent.

Just spent a similar amount and slightly gutted I don't have a subterranean structure attached!
It's not in Bervie though thank christ.

Edit - Ant, seriously try and change that. Fraserburgh is really heroin central. Childhood friend there has about 10% of his primary class still living at 30.

I'll only be living there for a year. I did it for the money. Will return to Glesga in a year. I hear they don't like people from West Central Scotland…
