Aberdeen Harbour 1930s

I am looking at a photo of Aberdeen Harbour, taken in the 1930s, in the book 'Earth Then and Now: Amazing Images of Our Changing World'. On a hillside is a magnificent building, very long, with prominent end structures. The middle seems to be fronted by a long arcade or veranda.  I'm curious what it was - perhaps a hotel?

  After searching images & maps on the internet, this forum seems like my best bet for more info. I apologize if I am asking too much or not posting properly. It just seems like such an imposing building must have been well known. I would really appreciate any answers.

It sounds like either the Aberdeen Police Station or the Catholic Seminary, built in 1931. If it's colonial in style, it would be the former, and the latter if Chinese style.

Thank you very much for the info. I would never have guessed it to be of Catholic origin - this from a Canadian raised by the nuns!
