A Moray museum is preparing to reopen its doors again following a massive refurbishment.
About £500,000 has been spent to revamp the Tomintoul attraction to celebrate the heritage from the area.
The building, which will be christened the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Discovery Centre, will be home to galleries for visitors as well as an information centre and space for the Cairngorms community to use.
Next week, Clare Russell, Lord Lieutenant of Banffshire, will officially reopen the attraction to welcome a new wave of tourists through the doors.
The museum, which is on The Square in the village, will continue to be central to the multi-purpose facility with stories and artefacts showcasing the area’s history on prominent display.
A virtual reality experience and digital archive to research local history have now been added to the visitor offer. A first floor flat has also been refurbished as part of the works.
The project, which has been led by the Tomintoul and Glenlivet Landscape Trust, is part of a £3.6million scheme across the area that has been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
Local residents have been invited to attend the opening, which will begin with a piper performing in the square.
Speyside Glenlivet councillor Louise Laing said: “I’ve been down to have a look round while the work has been getting done and it looks fantastic.
“Tomintoul is very busy through the winter with the skiing. Hopefully, this can help bring visitors to the village all year round.”
The ceremony will take place on Tuesday, April 3 from 3pm.
