Two Deeside restaurants have joined forces with local crafts people to provide an opportunity for dining while Christmas shopping.

The Falls of Feugh in Banchory will host a Made in Marr pop-up today (Thursday).

Meanwhile, young entrepreneur Thomas Drummond’s new bistro in the Learney Arms, Torphins, will host pop-ups on Wednesday, December 14 and 21, designed to coincide with the weekly food market.

Behind the idea is Aboyne, Upper Deeside and Donside Councillor Geva Blackett who said: “The concept is really aimed at providing tourists with well-made local souvenirs at a reasonable cost, as well as helping talented crafters find a market for their wares.”
