About Us

Firstly we welcome you to our village whether it is to drop in for a while, visit for a day, or for a week or you are joining our community as a new resident.

This website connects our Benholm and Johnshaven community groups to inform residents and let them know what is happening here. It also welcomes visitors to not only our village but also the surrounding Coastal Strip areas of St Cyrus, Gourdon, Inverbervie, Catterline and Kinneff and the A92 Coastal Route.

It brings together our local villages, joins our local towns of Montrose and Stonehaven, crossing the borders of North Angus and South Aberdeenshire from Dundee to Dunnottar Castle.

The Benholm and Johnshaven Heritage Society would like to express huge thanks to ENECO and in particular Tullo and Twinshiels Windfarm Community Fund for providing the much needed support for our very up to date Website. It will make a huge difference to our Tourism promotions and support of communities on our Coastal Mearns.
