The streets of Aberdeen city centre were filled with the sound of pipe bands and drums this weekend as the annual Armed Forces Parade got under way.
Around 1,000 service men and women, veterans and cadets gathered at Albyn Place at 11am on Saturday before marching down Union Street alongside vintage military vehicles.
The event involved veterans dressed in their old uniforms teaming up with people just at the beginning of their military careers.
The parade was led by a pipe band and also included members of the Highlanders, 4th Battalion and Royal Regiment of Scotland.
Later in the afternoon, Aberdeen Universities Officer Training Corps led the beating of the retreat.
There was further entertainment on offer as the Gordon Highlanders Museum stall offered free face painting and the chance to handle historical objects and speak to historians.
Members of the public were later invited into the Bridge of Don Barracks on King Street.
The day takes place, so that people can show respect for members of the armed forces, veterans and their families.
George Adam, the Lord Provost of Aberdeen, said people in Aberdeen could be relied on to give the forces personnel a warm welcome.
He added: “This is a day to honour the men and women of our armed forces past and present for their service to the country.
“It’s also a great family day out. We can always rely on the citizens of Aberdeen to give all those taking part a warm welcome and show their appreciation by lining the length of Union Street to see the parade march past.”
