Work on a new walking route that chronicles the history of two north-east towns has begun.
The heritage trail in Banff and Macduff aims to boost the neighbouring coastal communities by attracting more visitors.
It is hoped the route will also help with ongoing regeneration work.
As part of the project, work to set up eight information boards is already under way, with Banff Harbour and the town’s historic bridge among the spots to get one.
The idea is to celebrate the maritime and military history of the twin towns as well as facts about their flora and fauna.
It will also focus on the links with celebrated literary figure Lord Byron, who visited Banff when he was a boy.
The themes for each of the information panels came from residents who were asked their views on what they wanted to be displayed.
As well as the boards there is also a website and smartphone app and an audio guide that will be used to promote the trail.
Banff and Buchan area committee chairman Andy Kille said he was “pleased” that a key part of the revival of the towns was moving forward.
He said: “I’m pleased to see this key strand of both Banff and Macduff action plans coming to fruition in the towns.
“Facilities like heritage trails can be used by locals and tourists alike to learn more about an area and can of course be considered an attraction, adding to an area’s offering in terms of things to see and do.”
The heritage trail website will be used by the local community to add stories and photographs.
