The Bervie Braes was also a celebration of an award of an RSCDS Scroll of Honour to Noreen that same year and represents the ornate illuminations of a scroll, the figures being reminiscent of fireball swinging, a Hogmanay tradition in Stonehaven.
The deviser calls the formation bars 9-16 The Market Square, a variation on a figure from the dance Bonnie Brux.
The Bervie Braes are the clifftop meadows on the southern edge of Stonehaven Harbour on the east coast of Scotland.
