The Rob Roy Preservation Trust is delighted to announce that the new Rob Roy statue is now finished and will be unveiled on Saturday 16th September 2017 at 10:00 am.

The unveiling ceremony will take place on the bridge at Peterculter overlooking the rock on which a statue of Rob Roy has stood since 1850.

The Rob Roy Preservation Trust are very grateful to all of the local firms and individuals who contributed to the fundraising to help raise the necessary funds to put Rob Roy back on the rock.

The fundraising target being reached was helped by an award of up to £30,000 from Aberdeen City Council towards the new statue.

Doug Middleton, chairman of the Rob Roy Preservation Trust, said “It is fantastic news and many thanks to Councillor Marie Boulton who has pushed this through and she’s done a great job in promoting Peterculter.”
