A Deeside family have reached a remarkable milestone following their recent annual ‘cousin reunion’ at The Boat Inn, Aboyne.

The Robertson cousin’s have been meeting annually for three decades now as the latest reunion marked number 30 in a row.

From June 1985 the cousins, whose grandparents were William and Jessie Robertson, have met up after deciding to meet socially rather than just a funerals all those years ago.

William and Jessie raised seven children who were born between 1905 and 1923.

They were Agnes, Jessie, Alexander, Margaret, William, Arthur and Percy. All bar Jessie went on to raise fourteen children between them – the Robertson Cousins.
