An Aberdeen MSP enjoyed a Doric poem recital as she opened the premises of a Braille publishing house.
Aberdeen South MSP and Mental Health Minister, Maureen Watt opened the new base of the Scottish Braille Press Edinburgh.
Scottish Braille Press produces Braille, large-print and audio publications.
The move has allowed the organisation to grow its workforce to 103 employees, nearly half of them disabled or visually impaired.
Royal Blind School pupil Christina, who is learning Braille, gave a performance of Nicky Tams at the opening for the Aberdeen-born minister.
Royal Blind, the charity which runs the Scottish Braille Press had asked the minister to choose a Doric poem as she was the first person to take her oath in office as an MSP in Doric.
Ms Watt said: “I am delighted to be receiving a copy of Nicky Tams in Braille and in Doric from Christina, who is learning Braille herself.
This shows that Braille in Scotland not only has a proud history but an important role in our future too.
“People with vision impairments should have the same access to books, magazines and important personal documents that others enjoy, and that is why the work of the Scottish Braille Press is so important.”
