A map is to be created highlighting the “uniquenesss” of North Kincardine, and there are upcoming events for local people to get involved.

Anne Murray was chosen by the North Kincardine Public Art Group (NKPAG) for her experience in working with communities wanting to make the most of their heritage.

Michael Morgan, chair of the NKPAG, said: “North Kincardine has seen considerable housing development since the 1970s and continues to grow rapidly, especially at Hillside, Newtonhill and Chapelton.

“Many residents are new to the area and we are keen to provide them with an opportunity to share in the history and the beauty of the diverse landscape in North Kincardine.

“Anne has brought a wealth of new ideas and the group is extremely optimistic that we will create an exciting ‘treasure map’ that will encourage residents and tourists to explore the area and to find out more about North Kincardine.”

Anne Murray said: “I would love the people who live, work and visit the Kincardine area to develop and share in their rich community heritage and to find new ways to engage with the landscape, the people, the culture and the stories.”

People can try out the routes and contribute to the map by attending events on January 22 and January 23, which vary from workshops to cycle trails, and many other activities.
