Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 14. Stonehaven Open Air Swimming Pool

Stonehaven Pool

Up north again for the latest in this series. The above picture is from the Wikipedia page about the pool which is apparently the only Olympic sized sea water lido in the Art Deco style.

The pool’s home web page is here.

There is a nice photo of the facade at this site. The yellow and blue paintwork is reminiscent of Kirkcaldy Ice Rink.

This is an aerial shot but you can’t really see any deco from above.

The gates look very deco, though.

This arty one is from flickr.

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 6 (i). Carron Restaurant Stonehaven

P1010980

After the Bon Accord Baths I thought I’d stay up north for the latest in this series.

This is an amazing sight. The cafe apparently fell into disrepair in the 1960s but has obviously been updated. I remember seeing an item on the TV once many years back about an Art Deco cafe in Stonehaven that had fallen into disrepair. I suppose this must have been it. What a great job they’ve done.

The street entrance looks like this.

The restaurant’s home page is here.

They claim to have a mirror that may be a work by Picasso! I believe it’s shown in this photo.

The foyer looks like this.

The fanlight parts of the windows are very deco.

The chairs are also in keeping with the Art Deco feel.

What a fantastic place to go and have a meal.
