"A hundred thousand welcomes" to my website, Andy Hall Photography, which features a selection of my work including images from 'A Sense of Belonging to Scotland'.

Through my photography, I explore the relationship between the landscapes of Scotland and its people. To native and adopted Scots and also to friends of Scotland, many of whom are far from home, there is often an indefinable feeling of longing for and belonging to a favourite place in Scotland.
My photography is a key to unlock a casket of memories of these special places whether they be from childhood, an unforgettable visit or simply a moment of beauty, distilled and frozen in time

Iain McFadden is a  Past President of the Stonehaven Fatherland Burns Club
He regularly plays and pipes in the haggis at the Fatherland Burns suppers. He plays with the Trybe and Burns songs are often featured in their repetoire.

The Trybe
The trybe successfully combine visual excitement with a fast and furious, full scale, aural assault, which takes no prisoners,they only have one volume setting - loud! Big drums, big bodhrans and piping at a breakneck speed c ome together to create a unique soundwhich defies classification - Heavy McMetal, anyone? Jigs reels and marches as you’ve never heard them before.

To quote one of their T-shirts slogans, on the front “I saw the Trybe,” on the back “and survived......”

Stonehaven Horizon

Stonehaven Horizon is a voluntary group whose aim is to foster civic pride in the town and make Stonehaven a better place to live and work in.  The group began as a subcommittee of the Stonehaven & District Community Council and initially organised clean-ups of the town's trouble spots.  This developed into the action group 'Stonehaven Horizon Project' in order to meet the challenges facing the town.
