Refurbished sections of the Speyside Way have been unveiled with walkers and cyclists progressing along the new path.
More than six miles of the scenic trail has been improved in Moray to make it more attractive for locals and tourists to access the countryside.
Sections between Craigellachie and Carron have been resurfaced with drainage improved to prevent water making the route impassable.
The project has also involved the replacement of four timber bridges, repairs to a suspension bridge and new fencing.
Laurie Piper, operations manager of Moray Speyside Tourism, said: “This important and long overdue upgrade of the Speyside Way is to be welcomed.
“For far too long, certain Moray sections of the path have been under-maintained and have delivered a less than rewarding experience for users.
“I hope this upgrade will see more people using and completing the Speyside Way in the years to come.”
The new sections of path were christened at the weekend with s series of walks and cycles led from Craigellachie and Aberlour.
Moray Council organised the repairs as part of its £810,000 Speyside Low Carbon project, which has been funded by grants from Transport Scotland and the European Regional Development Fund.
Sustainable travel officer Janet MacDonald said: “The works done to the path will allow all users to actively travel in all weather conditions.”
