Tarlair open air pool improvements suggested

Tarlair pool Tarlair has deteriorated since its closure

Councillors are being asked to approve a £300,000 programme of essential improvements to a former 1930s outdoor swimming pool complex at Macduff in Aberdeenshire.

The complex at Tarlair has deteriorated since its closure in the 1970s.

It is one of only a handful of Scotland's open air pools which remain.

Aberdeenshire Council officers are recommending essential repairs costing up to £300,000. The cost for full refurbishment could be £2.5m.
