A state-of-the-art drinking water tap has been installed in Aberdeen city centre in a bid to keep people hydrated.
The Top Up Tap is on St Nicolas Street and gives passers-by a chance to fill up their reusable bottles.
The opening marked the launch of a year-long partnership between Scottish Water and Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust.
Both organisations are looking to promote the importance and health benefits of drinking water.
Lord Provost Barney Crockett was joined by Angus the Bull, Donny the Sheep and volunteers for the trust to unveil the tap.

He said: “I am delighted to launch Aberdeen’s Top Up Tap alongside Scottish Water and Aberdeen Football Club Community Trust. This is an exciting addition to our city centre and a great way to remind people of the importance of staying hydrated with our country’s lovely, fresh tap water.”
The refill point – giving access to free drinking water at the push of a button – is connected to the mains water supply. It digitally tracks the water usage and records both cost and plastic savings.
