Stonehaven Tolbooth

Stonehaven Shops BookA new book, published in time for Christmas, will bring back memories for generations of Stonehaven folk, telling the story of the many shops and businesses in the Town over the past 60 years. It has been written by Donald Mitchell, who is well known for running a very successful hairdressing salon ‘Hair Care’ in the centre of the Town for over 40 years. Donald moved to Stonehaven from Turriff at the age of 11 when his parents George and Ella Mitchell took over the Star Inn in Rodney Street...

Willie Main was born in Stonehaven on the 31st January 1884, the second son of Jane Scott and shoemaker James Main; he was one of three boys and six girls and the family lived at 1, Old Pier at Stonehaven Harbour.
