The Stoneyburn Stories project aimed to save and pass on to future generations some of the important landmarks in Stoneyburn’s past. The project created a book (click on the link above) and a walking map highlighting ten locations throughout the village. View the walking map here Map Front and Back .

The Stoneyburn Heritage Group researched the history of the village for two years, gathering material and discussing the social history of the village. The Group worked with writer Andrew McCallum and artist Gordon Shaw, to create a series of illustrations and stories inspired by the ten selected locations in the town. The artists also visited the primary schools, to hear from pupils about their special places in Stoneyburn, and to help them write poems and create artworks inspired by those places.
