People in Stonehaven have been told to prepare for floods later today as rough weather approaches.
The Scottish Environment Protection Agency (Sepa) has issued a series of flood warnings for different parts of the north-east.
Low-lying Cowie is at the biggest risk at high tide at 3pm, with the potential for waves overtopping.
There is currently a flood warning in place for #Stonehaven, with flooding impacts expected around the time of high tide at 3pm today. Please take action to protect your property. Floodline: 03459881188.
Sepa said a combination of high tides and prevailing weather conditions could hit low-lying land, roads and property.
The areas from Spey Dam to Newtonmore, Sluggan to Dulnain Bridge and Spey Viaduct to Spey Bay have also been given a more serious flood warning.
Again, low-lying land is at particular risk, with the B9015 between Garmouth and Kingston singled out by the environmental body as a likely site for flooding.
The issues in the coastal parts of the region may be worse around high tide, which is around 1.10pm.
