NINE of the North-east’s top tourist at­trac­tions have joined forces in a new ini­tia­tive.

The spring rover ticket will be of­fered to vis­i­tors to Mac­duff Aquar­ium, the Mu­seum of Scot­tish Light­houses in Fraser­burgh, Bal­moral Cas­tle and Es­tate, Brae­mar Cas­tle, the Gor­don High­landers Mu­seum, Grampian Trans­port Mu­seum, Aberdeen Science Cen­tre, Royal Lochna­gar Dis­tillery and Crathes Cas­tle. One thou­sand vis­i­tors pay­ing at any of the sites will be of­fered the ticket so they can go to three other at­trac­tions for free. Mike Ward, the cu­ra­tor at the Grampian Trans­port Mu­seum in Al­ford, said: “All re­gional at­trac­tions are busiest at school hol­i­day times, but in the pe­ri­ods in-be­tween we have ca­pac­ity to try new things. Talk­ing to some col­leagues in the area we agreed to work to­gether to trial a new off-peak ticket, the ‘Spring Rover’. “This would in­cen­tivise vis­i­tors to stay longer in the area, with con­se­quent in­creased spend, and en­able lo­cal peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence some of the out­stand­ing at­trac­tions in the North-east they may not have seen be­fore.”
