A Deeside sports centre partly funded by the local community is just months away from opening.
New images show Banchory Sports Village taking shape, with a summer completion date expected.
The facility, which is being built to the north of Hill of Banchory Primary School, has been funded in part by the community which raised £700,000.
Aberdeenshire Council’s images show the outside of the building is close to being finished and the inside, including the pool, is rapidly taking shape.
The sports complex was approved by the authority last summer after decades of the town battling to bring a new complex to the area.
The plans include a six-lane swimming pool, a training pool, a three-court sports hall, fitness suite, squash courts, changing rooms, reception and cafe.
Building work was scheduled to start in October 2017 but due to contractual wrangles it was delayed by a month.
James Knowles, chairman of the sports village trust, said: “It’ll be very impressive and there’s a lot of people looking forward to using it on a recreational basis, but also because of the jobs that will be created.”
Banchory residents have been calling for upgraded sporting amenities for many years, with the current swimming pool at the town’s academy only 20m (65ft) in length.
Previous plans to expand sporting facilities in the town failed to get off the ground.
The new centre will be run and managed by the local authority’s newly formed sports and leisure facility operator, Live Life Aberdeenshire.
