A HISTORIC hotel near the River Dee in Aberdeenshire is helping to safeguard the river for future generations by donating a discretionary £1 from every diner’s bill to a charitable trust.
The team at Maryculter House aims to raise more than £10,000 this year for the River Dee Trust – an organisation which promotes and supports improvement of the waterway.
The 40-bedroom hotel launched the campaign by hosting a Ghillies’ Lunch for those who live and work on the river.
Managing director of the hotel, Peter Walker, said the money raised “will have a huge impact on what the trust can do to ensure our beautiful river is maintained and fishing stocks are protected”.
He added: “What better way to celebrate our fantastic river than by hosting a lunch for those men and women who work on it throughout the year.”
