A North-east town has been crowned one of the best places to live in the country.
A Sunday Times list based its conclusions on figures for education, jobs and crime as well as where to get a good cup of coffee.
Banchory was crowned one of the best places while North Berwick topped the list in Scotland.
Tim Palmer, who compiled the list, said: “Simply, we think it’s one of the best places to live in Scotland.
“It’s a thriving town surrounded by fantastic scenery.
“You’re not too far from Aberdeen but not too near either.
“You’ve got fantastic schools, and there’s lots going on as well.”
