The Aberdeen Highland Games are set to return to Hazlehead Park this Sunday.
Thousands are expected to go to the games which is now in its 58th year.
There will be a range of activities such as piping competitions and the Scottish tug-o-war championship.
Douglas Lumsden, co-leader of Aberdeen City Council, said: “Aberdeen’s Highland Games is always a highlight on our summer city events programme.
“Regularly attracting over 10,000 visitors, Aberdeen’s Highland Games is a special combination of traditional Highland Games events alongside family entertainment, making it a wonderful day out.
“For decades it has been popular with local residents as well as visitors from far and near, making it a very important part of the city calendar.
“As a council we have invested significantly in bringing new events to Aberdeen – including Spectra, Nuart Aberdeen, Tour Series cycling and the Great Aberdeen Run – but the traditional events are the foundations we are building upon and it is fantastic to see the Highland Games thriving.”
