A young fan of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May was left overjoyed after meeting one of his heroes by Loch Ness.
The trio’s new show – The Grand Tour – has officially moved on from the Highlands after a week of explosions and fast cars during filming at the beauty spot.
Jeremy Clarkson and his sidekicks from the hit Amazon Prime show thanked the local residents for their warm welcome after they finished filming on Saturday.
And there was joy for one young fan from Inverness after he waited patiently outside the filming set near Fort Augustus for a chance to meet his heroes.
Muirtown Primary pupil Kayden Platt, 9, managed to grab a word with Richard Hammond as he was leaving the set after filming finished on Saturday.
He even got an autograph from the celebrity presenter – despite the fact Mr Hammond was asked to sign a book of his former show Top Gear, rather than one from the new one.
Kayden’s dad Kyle Platt waited with his son for an opportunity to spot his favourite TV stars
He said: “He’s delighted. He just loves the three guys and Hammond is his absolute favourite so it was a real treat for him.
“We just hung about waiting for them to come out and we got lucky that he took the time to stop.”
The film shoot also extended into Inverness over the weekend, with three classic cars being spotted putting in an appearance on the roads along the side of the River Ness.
However, the shoot ran into problems after a drone being used for filming crashed into a tree and came down near the Cavell Gardens war memorial in the city.
A passer-by who was walking in the area at the time said: “We saw the three vintage cars which were all being driven very close together which attracted our attention.
“Then we saw the drone which came back across the river but you could tell it was going too fast and it hit a tree with a mighty bang.
“I can only think however was flying it was looking through the lens rather than where they were going.”
The three presenters were complimentary about their stay, with Mr Clarkson praising the “mesmerising” views from their studio tent.
James May posted on social media thanking the audience.
He said: “A big up to Scotland the Brave for laughing at our crap jokes, aye.”
