Craze rock­ing all over the town

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

A new rock paint­ing craze has taken a Mearns town by storm af­ter more than 1,000 peo­ple signed up to a ded­i­cated Face­book group.

Stone­haven rocks – paint, hide and find en­cour­ages fam­i­lies to find and then re­hide painted stones around the area’s seafront, woods, and streets.

Kirk­caldy res­i­dent Linda Sutherland, who grew up in Stone­haven, cre­ated the group, as well as an­other sim­i­lar one in Fife.

The Fife group cur­rently has 1,400 mem­bers, while the Stone­haven group has re­cruited 1,084 ea­ger fans who are scour­ing nooks and cran­nies in the hunt for the rocks.

Linda said: “This is a group for peo­ple who live in or are vis­it­ing Stone­haven to join in some free fun. Adults and chil­dren can join in.

“The idea is that you col­lect or buy some stones, rocks or shells. Ei­ther paint or draw on some cute de­signs or mes­sages on one side.

“On the re­verse side write a mes­sage such as ‘Stone­haven Rocks. Find on Face­book. Keep or re-hide me.’

“You then leave them around or hide them for oth­ers to find. If you find one, add a photo and mes­sage to the page. Then ei­ther re-hide or keep it. You can make some your­self to hide.

“Please spread the word so lots of peo­ple can join in. When you make a set of stones to hide why not post a photo on Face­book with a clue to where they will be hid­den?”
