Music, culture and history will converge this summer as part of a major gathering at an Aberdeenshire landmark.
Fyvie Homecoming Festival, from August 28 to 31, will boast a full programme of events including concerts, a ceilidh and a gala in the grounds of Fyvie Castle.
Organisers of the four-day celebration are hoping to attract expatriate Scots from all over the world to sample Scottish culture.
Chair of the organising committee, Anne Iravani, said: “Our festival in 2009 proved very successful, with over 4,000 people visiting the village over the weekend and we are aiming for something even bigger and better this time.
“Although only a small village, Fyvie is historically important and is right in the heart of an area of Scotland which is also rich in music of various types, and there will be plenty to sample from local musicians, singers and dancers.
“Fyvie Castle will provide a wonderful backdrop for our gala on the Sunday afternoon and we look forward to welcoming as many people as possible to join in the celebrations.”
