Children from Braemar Primary School will get the chance to become tour guides at Braemar Castle on Friday.
The local community took over the castle 12 years ago on a repairing lease, with the school involved from the beginning.
During the early roof repairs, pupils researched and found the local quarry the original slates had come from.
Castle volunteer and teacher at Braemar Primary School, Marilyn Baker said: “There is a real affection for the castle and the children have been practising hard for their roles.
“It’s fantastic to have the building, with its amazing history, now part of community life.”
Castle Manager Georgina Errington added: “We’re hoping for a good turn-out of parents as well as visitors on Friday.
“The children have done such a good job learning how to welcome people and the stories to tell and of course their enthusiasm is infectious.
“It’s good to know the future of the castle is safe with these young members of the community.”
The children will be on duty from noon to 3pm on Friday June 14.
Members of Braemar Community Limited have free entry and local non-members can join on the day.
