Leader Archive Online

By Jane Cruickshank / January 23, 2024

THE British Newspaper Archive has announced the addition of The Mearns Leader to its huge list of publications available online to search and peruse.

And the site has published an article celebrating both the arrival of The Leader to its collection – and the area’s associations with Robert Burns.

With an account of the history of our local, weekly newspaper and an account of Burns and his connections to Stonehaven and the Mearns, the article makes for an excellent read.

Enjoy.
