An Aberdeenshire couple are packing their bags for a mystery tour, 60 years after tying the knot.
Sandy Davidson, 85, and wife Jessie, 83, were married at Monymusk Church on October 10, 1959.
The Stonehaven pair had met two years earlier, having been regular attendees at dances at Kintore Public Hall.
Mrs Davidson, originally from Aberdeen, used to travel through for “the dancing” with her friends, her husband remembered.
The couple were presented with flowers and a bottle of whisky by the Provost of Aberdeenshire, Bill Howatson, to mark their diamond anniversary.
The Lord Lieutenant of Kincardine, Carol Kinghorn, also paid them a visit at their home.
Mr and Mrs Davidson only recently moved to Stonehaven, having lived and worked in St Cyrus for more than 30 years.
Together, they ran the village shop and post office.
They remain active and are still eager members of Stonehaven Indoor Bowling Club.
Mr Davidson explained it was a spur of the moment decision to step into the unknown with their trip.
He said: “We’re going away on holiday – don’t ask us where, it’s a mystery.
“We just thought we would do something spur of the moment.
“We are completely in the dark. We haven’t been told what to pack or anything like that.”
Mrs Davidson added: “We have never done anything like this, so we’ll just have to wait and see.
“We have had a very busy life and have learned to never sleep on an argument.
“Keep calm and you’ll be alright.”
