Summer has surely arrived when the doors to the Stonehaven Open Air Pool are formally opened this Saturday. The fun starts at 10.45 outside the Pool with Splasher and the Newtonhill Pipe Band.  The official opening is at 11.00 when Cllr Davidson cuts the ribbon on the front doors, then more pipe music is followed by Stephen Jackson's disco.

For the third year running, the attraction has been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence! The award is only given to places which consistently win great reviews by travellers - and only 20% of the winners are attractions like the Pool! So everyone at the Pool is grateful of all the reviews which have helped them win his award - and they particularly appreciate the hard-working volunteers of the Friends of the Pool and Aberdeenshire Council's excellent operational staff.
