Badger?

It is hard to say from the photo but badgers usually defecate in shallow hollows known as latrines rather than on top of grass, though this is not unheard of especially lone youngsters with no territory to mark.

Can you give some idea of size and why you think badger please? The map shows you in the middle of Aberdeen, I'm afraid I don't know if you get badgers in Aberdeen, can anyone else help.

The shape and consistency, as can best be ascertained from a photo, is too amorphous to be sure what made it, the best way to judge will be from secondary evidence as requested above.
