Ian snaps up the first ‘Local Legacy’

AN ARBROATH landmark has been chosen as part of a national campaign to recognise Britain’s natural treasures.

A picture of the Deil’s Heid at Arbroath cliffs was taken by local man Ian Lamb and entered into a competition run by The Glenlivet distillery to uncover ‘Local Legacies’.

At a special ceremony on Monday afternoon in the Old Brewhouse Hotel Ian Logan, brand manager for The Glenlivet, presented Ian with a plaque to mark his success.

Ian Logan said: “We thought it was very appropriate to have the very first ‘Local Legacy’ in Scotland.

“In an industry that’s trying to catch up all the time, it is important to take the time to remember where we come from.”

Ian Lamb explained that the Deil’s Heid encapsulated for him the natural beauty of Arbroath and the cliffs. He said: “It was natural features I was looking for in the area to fit in with the competition.

“If you think of Arbroath then you think of cliffs and in the context of cliffs it’s either the Needle’s E’e or Deil’s Heid and the Deil’s Heid won.”
