Temporary speed cameras are to be installed across the north to ensure the influx of visitors are keeping safe.
The move is part of a new campaign from Safety Cameras Scotland to encourage drivers to “stay within the speed limits this staycation” and to highlight the presence of more vulnerable road users.
Each of the new locations will be enforced for a maximum of one month.
Eric Dunion, unit manager of the North Safety Camera Unit, said: “We have been working closely with our local authority and Police Scotland colleagues to identify locations where we anticipate an increase in traffic due to the increased number of visitors to Scotland this summer.
“These locations would not normally meet the criteria to become a permanent location but the short term deployment scheme gives us the flexibility to be at locations where we believe there will be a change in traffic behaviour.”
Chief Inspector Neil Lumsden, from the north roads policing team, said: “With the expected increase in travel over the summer months, I am delighted that the North Safety Camera Unit is taking the strategic approach of implementing new short term deployment locations.
“Roads policing work closely with the safety camera unit to make our roads safer for all road users.”
