The Land Train finally arrived in Stonehaven this past week with the Leader and Observer getting the first pictures of the tourist attraction.

Stonehaven Town Partnership are behind the scheme to introduce the land train to the town, in the hope that it will boost tourism.

It will ferry tourists from Dunnottar and through Stonehaven, making its way to the harbour area, to the Market Square and along to the Open Air Pool.

There have been several hold-ups with the initiative, which has been financed by a grant from the coastal communities fund.

Stonehaven Town Partnership have also announced the winners of their bus stop poster competition with the Stoney schools faring well.

There were over 300 entries to the competition with all of them going on show at the Stonehaven Library throughout August.

The winners will also have their posters on the stops for the land train around Stonehaven.

They will be at the Market Square, Dunnottar Castle, Stonehaven Harbour and the Open Air Pool.

Winners were: Freya Stevenson P4 from Dunnottar Primary, Emma Henderson P5J and Emma Campbell P6 from Mill O’Forest Primary and Allan He P2 from Arduthie Primary.

Winners also received vouchers so their class would be able to enjoy a trip on the land train.

A certificate and vouchers were presented last Friday by STP member Michelle Ward.

It is hoped the Land Train will be up and running within the coming weeks.
