Most of the funding for the new device, which can save the life of someone in cardiac arrest, was supplied by the North Kincardine Rural Community Council (NKRCC).

Mr O. Singnorini, chairman of the Aberdeen branch of the British Heart Foundation, handed the machine over to the Maryculter community last month at a training course organised by the Scottish Ambulance Service for local groups.

The defibrillator is positioned in the Old Mill Inn and signs have been put up at the Maryculter Community Hall and nearby Deeside Caravan park to alert residents to its location, in case the new equipment is required in an emergency situation.
