Former Banchory Academy pupils recently held a reunion in the town. The nostalgic get-together was mostly for those who left the school in 1968-70. The programme included a “beer and blether” on the Friday night at the Burnett Arms in Banchory, and a walk up Scolty Hill in brilliant sunshine the following day with 13 taking part. A meal was held on the Saturday night attended by 35 ex-pupils and seven partners. Organisers said that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves over the two days and they were all looking forward to the next reunion.
