Two former pupils from the Inverurie Academy class of 1964 honoured national bard Robert Burns in Stirling.

Stirling Burns Club president Ian Cockshoot and club member and speaker at its dinner in 2020 Janice Hepburn (nee Edward), placed a wreath at the city's Burns statue on behalf of the group.

Ian said: "We have been friends ever since school and, along with Janice’s husband Sandy, we were all at Aberdeen University together and have remained friends ever since."
