An archaeological dig at Bennachie is being opened up to the public.
The excavation will take place in an area on the lower slopes of the iconic hill, and will include guided tours of the site.
Tours will be given by archaeologist Colin Shepherd, a member of the Bennachie Landscapes group, which is a joint project between the Bailies of Bennachie and Aberdeen University.
He said: “Volunteers have been working in this area two days a week since the start of July.
“This is a really exciting project and so far we have discovered evidence of habitation dating back hundreds of years.
“There is clear evidence of a dwelling along with other building remains.
“An old trackway, enclosure banks and drystane dykes also indicate a landscape with a very complicated history.
“We have had people calling by during the dig and are always happy to explain what is happening.
“This open event will give an opportunity for people to find out more about the project.”
The dig will take place on Monday, August 19 from 11.30am to 2.30pm.
Excavations will continue at the site until the end of August, with volunteers welcome to come and help.
A map and instructions to find the site will be posted at the Rowantree Car Park and at the Bennachie Centre.
Visitors should allow up to 45 minutes to reach the dig.
