In honour of those who lost their lives in the service of their country, Remembrance Sunday events are being held across the north and north-east this weekend.
Armistice Day, observed on November 11, falls on Saturday this year and is observed by people honouring the sacrifice made by those who fought for their country.
The tradition was started back in 1919 by King George V.
Since then, communities across the country have paid their respects to the fallen by displaying the symbolic red poppy.
The Royal British Legion Scotland says Remembrance Sunday “is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life”.
Royal British Legion Scotland is heavily involved in organising events to mark both Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday.
These events will include parades, speeches and a two-minute silence.
Here are some of the events taking place on Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday across Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire, Moray and the Highlands.
