Roads were flooded and rivers burst their banks as severe rain caused chaos throughout the north-east.
Torrential downpours resulted in the River Don bursting its banks in several places in the afternoon, while busy commuter routes were submerged and left impassable to anything smaller than 4×4 vehicles.
The majority of the problems were reported around the Kintore area, where many roads were swamped.
The B977 Hatton of Fintray to Kintore route resembled a river as it was left underneath more than a foot of water.
Parts of Kintore Golf Club near the banks of the River Don were badly hit, and fields nearby were almost completely submerged in river water.
The club and clubhouse have been closed.
Aberdeenshire Council’s transport team advised motorists that a stretch of the A93 Aberdeen to Braemar road between Invercauld Bridge and Braemar was passable with care, and motorists throughout the region were advised to be on the lookout for surface water.
Meanwhile, the River Dee burst its banks near Maryculter.
Other parts of the north-east particularly affected by the wet weather included Craibstone, where nearly an inch of rain fell in a 24-hour period.
In Balmoral, 1.37 inches of water was recorded, and the Met Office noted 1.2 inches at Aboyne.
However, the recent poor weather is not expected to continue.
Alex Burkill, a forecaster for the Met Office, said sunnier weather is forecast for the rest of the week.
Mr Burkill said: “I think we’ll see a few spots of rain on Tuesday, but nothing like we’ve seen on Monday.
“It’s looking to be much brighter and lighter, and on Tuesday night into Wednesday it’s looking to be very chilly, with widespread frost for many people first thing on Wednesday morning.
“The rest of Wednesday looks pretty sunny before things take a little bit of a turn, and we’ll see some rain arriving as we go into Thursday, which could be pretty heavy at times, and a similar situation on Friday morning.”
