An Easter Ross lifeboat station is preparing to open its doors to the public for the first time since before the coronavirus pandemic.

Invergordon RNLI said it was “very pleased” to announce that it will be hosting an open day on September 10.

The event, which will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., will mark the first time the resort has opened its doors to the public in this way since 2019.

It will be eagerly awaited by many keen to take a closer look at the launch of a Memory Shannon Agnes AP Barr RNLI 13-37 class lifeboat which bears the names of loved ones of thousands of well-wishers.
