The Scottish Government has awarded more than £100,000 to Scottish food and drink projects to support the growing industry.
Funding has been granted to celebrate local produce showcased in projects run across the nation.
A total of 23 projects will benefit from the £104,500 awarded from the Connect Local Regional Food Fund.
Included in the list of award winners is Turriff Show, the Deeside Local Food Festival and the Skye Food and Drink Festival.
Aberdeenshire farmer Sarah Mackie is helping to arrange the food and drink development for Turriff’s two-day agricultural show which highlights local produce.
She said: “Turriff Show are delighted to have been given support for the new Food and Drink Pavilion by the Connect Local Regional Food Fund, created to promote local food and drink, in line with Ambition 2030.
“It’s great that the show has been recognised as a progressive event and the new area will have local food and drink businesses from across the north-east showcasing their quality products.”
The Deeside Local Food Festival, a one-day event in Cults, is now in its fifth year which has grown annually with last year showcasing more than 62 local food and drink vendors.
Co-founder of the festival and Mixing Bowl chairwoman Rachel Gambro said: “We had our fingers crossed and were delighted to find out we had been successful.
“We will use it to increase our event promotion activities this year.
“Last year the event attracted over 3,000 visitors and this September we are looking forward to welcoming even more as the event is shaping up to be our biggest festival yet.”
The Skye Food and Drink Festival organisers plan to use the money for their community-focused projects.
Festival director Pam Allan said: “We’re absolutely chuffed to bits. The festival brings the whole of Skye together so people spend more time exploring the produce our gourmet island has to offer.
“All across Skye there are these nuggets of deliciousness in the cafes, restaurants, distilleries – we’re just so happy to showcase it and get all of the community involved.”
