Who will be the 60th Buchan Queen?

The contest is returning for 2022 and the Scottish Week committee are looking for an ambassador to represent the down during the summer festivities.

And there will be an extra shine on this year’s Queen and Princesses as Scottish Week celebrates it’s 60th year.

The committee is looking for applicants aged 18+ that reside in the area (AB42/AB43/AB41 postcode) and are available on Saturday, May 28 for the competition.

Duties include (but not limited to) prize giving, attending a variety of events, meet and greets, photo opportunities, engaging with members of the public, media interviews, possible visits to local care homes/hospital (depending on whether restrictions allow).

The first two runners-up on the night will be announced as “Buchan Princesses”.

To enter send a private message to the Scottish Week Facebook page and start your message with ‘BuchanQueen’.

Then provide details of the person you are nominating, such as, name, date of birth, town/village, a valid contact number and that you have their agreement to enter the competition - along with a brief description as to why you think they’d make a good Buchan Queen.

Please ensure you ask the nominees permission before entering!

The 60th edition of Peterhead Scottish Week will run between July 16 and 24 and is set to be the biggest and best yet!

Behind the scenes the committee have been busy planning the celebrations for the diamond week with a host of events.

Among this year’s star attractions will be the RAF Red Arrows display team who will be returning to the Blue Toon for the ninth time.

This year they will be accompanied by tow RAF display Spitires and the return of the RAF Falcons parachute display team.

During the past two years, the Scottish Week committee have come up with a hybrid event, with many events being held online but townsfolk will be keen to see it back with a bang in 2022.
