A charity cycling and walking event is to return for its third year in a north-east village.
The Chapelton Bike Ride and 5km walk will take place in Chapelton, near Newtonhill, in aid of North East Sensory Services (NESS) on September 2.
Sponsored by Burness Paull, the event is for all ages and abilities.
Participants have the choice of either a 42-mile or 12-mile bike route, as well as a 5km walk around Elsick House.
The cycle route will start and finish at Hume Square in Chapelton, passing the seaside town of Stonehaven, and travelling through the forests of Fetteresso and Durris.
Cyclists are then led towards Maryculter and the banks of the River Dee, before returning to the starting point.
Other activities will also be on offer for visitors and spectators, including live music and market stalls with local produce.
All funds raised will go to NESS, a charity that supports more than 6,500 people in the north-east with visual and hearing impairments.
Registration costs vary depending on the selected cycle route and the amount taking part, while the walking route is free of charge.
