Douneside House, a country house in the Royal Deeside, will undergo a significant refurbishment next year.
The house, which is owned and managed by the MacRobert Trust, will transform its restaurant facilities for 2019.
Its current restaurant is renowned for being the only three AA rosette restaurant in Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire.
Interior design company, Goddard Littlefair, are coordinating the revamp of the kitchen, and say they will bring “the outside in.”
Lucy Robinson, of Goddard Littlefair, said: “Bringing the spirit of Douneside’s gardens and passion for their home-grown produce into the restaurant space, Goddard Littlefair set about creating a new heart for the house.
“Each space has its own character, brought to life with galleries of family photos depicting their history.
“A new library restaurant will be an intimate dining space to enjoy Douneside’s renowned tasting menu whilst enjoying panoramic views across the Howe O’ Cromar.
“Both restaurant menus will comprise of seasonal organic vegetables grown in the kitchen garden by the gardens team, dished up within the newly refurbished boutique ‘family home’.”
Restaurant Manager, Tom Bielawski, has been working closely with designers to bring this project to life and ensure it captures the ‘heart’ of the Douneside story.
Bielawski says, “I am incredibly excited about this project. Guests can now dine in the conservatory restaurant, which will have a relaxed atmosphere and offer beautiful views over the terrace garden.
“The library restaurant, where we will serve our tasting menu on Thursday to Saturday evenings, will be the perfect, intimate setting for Chef to showcase his culinary talents.
“Our pantry will have a wonderful selection of wines on display, with lots of little extra touches which will really enhance the Douneside dining experience.”
The works are being overseen by local contractors Pert Bruce, who are based in Aberdeenshire.
Douneside House will be closed for three weeks of January 2019, re-opening on January 26.
