The final list of candidates for the upcoming Aberdeenshire Council election has been confirmed.
In total, 70 seats are up for grabs at Woodhill House across 19 districts in the run up to polling day on May 4.
A number of high profile councillors are bowing out, including former Provost and Conservative Jill Webster and Liberal Democrat group leader Karen Clark.
Both councillors currently represent Banchory.
Current Provost Hamish Vernal is also drawing his career in public service with the council to a close.
SNP candidate, Rickey Taylor, is one of the youngest council hopefuls on the ballot. The 20-year-old will contest the Troup ward.
He will be joined on the nationalist campaign trail by a former MSP, Dennis Robertson, who is standing in Stonehaven and Lower Deeside.
Aberdeenshire Council is currently governed by the SNP-Labour Partnership coalition who seized control from the Alliance coalition in 2015.
No political group has put forward enough candidates to gain overall control of the chamber at Woodhill House and another coalition deal is likely.
