Stonehaven Tolbooth

The museum had been looking forward to re-opening after the long lockdown and we spent considerable time, energy and money in adjusting the museum to comply with Government guidelines.

In May we were informed that the museum had been included in the UK edition of the Lonely Planet Guide - only 2 Stonehaven attractions were selected for inclusion. Also in May we started to receive weekly visits from Globus Tours. Their clients were mainly North American (USA and Canada) and these visits ran until September. The feedback received by...
