The Ship Inn Bar at Stonehaven Harbour has just completed major refurbishment. You would never believe this place was originally built in 1771. An extension to the rear has provided brand new Ladies and Gents plus a separated Disabled Toilet. The bar was reopened ahead of Schedule on Friday 20th April at 8pm.


Owner Simon Cruickshank, while accepting it is impossible to please everybody, said he was delighted with the comments from his customers. eg

"I was worried the pub would lose it's atmosphere but although it is fresh and clean, the old atmosphere is still there.
Over the last two years this Inn which was built in 1771 has added a new Restaurant and taken over the building next door and created five new well appointed bedrooms as well as refurbishing the existing rooms.

Big plans for Hogmanay 2012 in Stonehaven. The Fireballs Festival continues to attract 8 - 10,000 people and attracts world wide interest. Between 2000 and 2010 An Open Air in the Square Event also took place but in 2011 this did not take place due to lack of volunteers.

Local hotel owner Michelle Ward has taken up the challenge of organising the event this year and is building up great support from local organisations. She has already booked the Red Hot Chilli Pipers to headline the Event and lots of other initiatives are planned.
See Red Hot Chilli Pipers in action on video below


More details will be announced later.
