A tourist shop is celebrating after receiving a five-star rating from a national body.
The Platform in Macduff was given the award by VisitScotland at its first ever grading visit. The former railway station got the accolade for its shop and Annie’s Cakery.
Elaine Williams, manager at The Platform, said: “We are absolutely delighted The Platform has been awarded its five-star status. This is a testament to both the dedication of the staff and the support we have received from our valued customers.
“We have already opened a new extension to our store since our grading and are constantly sourcing new and exciting products to offer.”
Jo Robinson, regional director at VisitScotland, said: “It is fantastic to see Aberdeenshire’s tourism offering enhanced by The Platform and Annie’s Cakery, and their well-deserved achievements.”
