Many Stonehaven residents often marvel at how little Stonehaven changes over the years - and looking back at these old photos of the town, there are many areas which are still instantly recognisable, decades on.
Leader reader Stuart McIntosh, who grew up in Stonehaven, has shared some old snaps of the town, taking us on a stroll down memory lane which shows the changes that have taken place over the years,
Amongst the areas photographed are the former Mackie Academy - which is now Arduthie Primary School, the Market Square, Allardice Street and the High Street, as well as Stonehaven beach and harbur.
Stuart said: “I was born in Arduthie Hospital, Stonehaven and have spent most of my life there until 2007 after which I bought a house in Netherley and have lived there ever since with my wife Rachel, my daughter Katie (13) and son Fraser (11).
“My family (grandparents and parents) are also from Stonehaven and owned a butchers shop for 60 years in the Market Square - J McIntosh & Son until my father retired in 1990.
The photos and postcards have been with my family for as long as I can remember and have really been collected by my father over many years.”
