Five Aberdeenshire VisitScotland information centres to close
Thursday October 12th 2017 at 5:13 PM
Visit Scotland information centres in five Aberdeenshire towns are set to close as part of national restructuring.
Those in Banff, Fraserburgh, Huntly and Stonehaven will close this month, and in Braemar by March 2019.
They’re among 39 to close across Scotland while 26 “high impact hubs” are set up, including in Aberdeen and Ballater.
Ten Aberdeenshire staff members will be affected.
Visit Scotland says its due to lower footfall and that staff will either be allowed to redeploy or be given a redundancy package.
