A Moray memorial dedicated to the women who kept Britain’s food supply flowing during the Second World War has been restored to its best.
Concerns were raised that the dedication to the Land Girls at Clochan, near Buckie, had become overrun with weeds.
Lhanbryde-based farmer Margaret Anderson described herself as “black affronted” after making a trip to the unique tribute, which was opened by the Duke of Rothesay in 2012, with friends.
The group was upset to see the amount of weeds that had taken hold at the site, which was created to remember the 80,000 women who left their homes to work on farms to feed the nation during the conflict.
Now Crown Estate Scotland, which is responsible for the memorial’s maintenance, has tidied the area so it once again looks its best for visitors.
A spokesman added: “We have put in place arrangements to ensure the future upkeep and maintenance of this site, paying tribute to the brave and vital efforts of the Women’s Land Army in the Second World War.”
