The Aberdeenshire Farming Museum will officially reopen on Wednesday.

Located in Aden Country Park, near Mintlaw, the museum tells the story of the region’s farming heritage with a unique collection of farming artefacts.

Alongside exhibits, the museum is organising a new programme of family craft activities and “Scarecrow Sundays”.

Visitors will be able to book their own exclusive timed slot for their free tour as part of a number of measures the museum is enforcing to ensure social distancing and limit the spread of Covid-19.

Other safety initiatives include a one-way system and hand-sanitising points.

Visitors and staff will be required to wear face coverings.

David Cook, chairman of Aberdeenshire Council’s culture and sport sub-committee, said: “The team has been working hard to create an entertaining, fun but most of all safe experience for our visitors.

“We are looking forward to giving everyone a warm welcome to this unique attraction.”

Aden Country Park also features a recently-refurbished playpark, a Victorian arboretum and 230 acres of scenery to explore by foot or by bicycle.

Free parking is available, and the park cafe is open for takeaway.

Opening hours are from 11am to 4pm, to book a timed slot, visit  www.livelifeaberdeenshire.org.uk
