Business in Brechin connected with the holiday trade showed interest in bus tours to Angus when Angus Tourist Board held a meeting here. It was pointed out that there are not many hotels in Angus to deal with bus tours, which are organised well ahead. The board took note of the interest shown and will bring this to the attention of operators.

For the past two months the Angus District Environmental Improvement Group has been worked under the auspices of the MSC at Brechin Cathedral, carrying out refurbishment of the Square Tower and the exterior which should be finished in time for the 1985 visitors. Reflective insulation panels were also laid in the heating ducts inside the building as part of an energy conservation scheme suggest after a survey.
