As a child I spent many a happy summer on my Granny's farm this was in the 1950s. The farm was called
Galahill (or Gallowhill) Farm. My granny's main income was earned from fruit, flowers and chickens. She died sometime in the eighties but left the farm a few years earlier to live in Torry. My Granny's name was Helen Gordon but I believe she was also known as Helen Robb as I think she may have married my step grandfather.

The reason for my e-mail is that I am thinking of visiting the area next year and wondered if the farmhouse is still there as if it is I would like to visit it. I cannot make out on the maps on line whether or not it is still there but I can see the area has changed a lot and if the farmhouse is no longer there I may not want go there but I think would still like to see Cove and Aberdeen again and other areas such as Duncanstone ,Leslie and Kennethmont where I believe a lot of my family come from. I would be very grateful for any information that anyone has on this.

Thank you
