A north-east council is aiming to expand charging points for electric vehicles across a tourist route.
Aberdeenshire Council is working with the North East 250 organisation to approach visitor attractions along the trail to offer advice on installing the facilities.
There are around 140 visitors sites on or near the circular route which takes the tourist through Aberdeen city, Royal Deeside, part of Cairngorms National Park, Speyside and the Banff and Buchan coasts.
Chairman of Aberdeenshire council’s infrastructure services committee, Peter Argyle, said: “With the North East 250 encompassing large parts of Aberdeenshire we are happy to be part of a project that encourages visitors to the region.
“It also fits well with the work of the sustainable development and transportation infrastructure teams at the council, encouraging the uptake of electric vehicles alongside active travel, and helping towards our target of reducing carbon emissions.
“Making the route accessible to electric vehicles will also help future-proof it for years to come.”
