We warmly welcome all suitablly qualified brethern to attend our meetings held in the Freemasons Hall, Aberdeen on the first and third Wednesdays each month from September-April each year.

All Sons of the Soil visitors new to the Freemasons Hall Aberdeen, will be given full tours of the building either before or after our regular meetings as a token of our appreciation.

We are very fortunate to be able to work our own live candiates for these last few years and have many candiates that will either start their masonic journey with us or complete what they started last term.

Last year in 2018 we had 12 candiates that went through the craft and this year 4 has joined so far and another 10 almost ready to start although theres a lot of completed forms still to be read out and the next regular meeting will be on the 17th of April 2019 we are working a double 1st degree (another 2 gentlemen has been invited making a possible 4 E.A’s) tyle for 7.30 pm but we might run a bit later!

We have now raised 6 brethren already in 2019 and we all wish them well in their future masonic journeys as its No secret being a master mason is only the first steps for many!

We have also given 1 candiate to an Angus and 1 to a Glasgow lodge since the last update as it made more sense for these potential brothers to stay very local and for 1451 to help our brethren in other parts of the country, we do this more than most know.


If you have never been to the finest freemason hall in Scotland we would be happy to give you a tour of the building after the evenings labours have been concluded.

For Non-Freemason visitors to this website the brethren of Sons of the Soil would be happy to explain what freemasonary is all about.

If you require more information on freemasonary in general or information on how to become a better man then please email our past master and past Aberdeen city provincial sec; Bryan Neave at [email protected]
