Aberdeen could be among a host of places in Scotland to benefit from hi-tech public taps as part of a bid to encourage people to drink more water.
Scottish Water Top-up Taps will be installed in around 30 towns and cities in the next two years.
Sites being considered include Glasgow, Ayr, Dumfries, Dunfermline, Fort William, Milngavie, Oban, Inverness and Aberdeen.
Environment Secretary Roseanna Cunningham attended the launch of the scheme outside Holyrood with school pupils, pictured.

The first will be located outside the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh and should be in place by the end of next month, with the first 10 hoped to be installed by the end of March.
Each tap is connected to the public water supply and will digitally track water usage.
Douglas Millican, Scottish Water chief executive, said: “This is part of our Your Water, Your Life campaign, a significant boost in encouraging more people to choose to drink tap water.”
