Clatt and Logie Coldstone schools to close down

Two rural primary schools in Aberdeenshire are to be closed down, it has been decided.

Pupils at Clatt and Logie Coldstone, which both have fewer than 10 pupils, are now to be transferred to nearby schools.

Proposals to close the two schools had earlier been backed by Aberdeenshire Council's education committee.

The local authority's leader, Anne Robertson, said it was a very difficult decision.
