A historic student parade was getting ready to roll on the streets of Aberdeen today.
The Torcher Parade was due to take place for the 129th time, with organisers excited to bring the event back.
Aberdeen University Students Association (AUSA) has decorated 20 floats, which will parade down Union Street.
It is one of the largest student torchlit parades in Europe and one of the oldest student events in the Granite City.
The Raising and Giving Campaign (RAG), a charity society at the university, is running the event in association with AUSA to raise funds for north-east charities.
The parade was due to start at 6pm today.
Several city centre roads were due to be closed for the event including Albyn Place, Alford Place, Castle Street, King Street and Back Wynd.
AUSA raising and giving committee chairwoman Signe Thye said: “We cannot wait to show the public what we have been working on for the past many months”.
