New images have been released of how a £10 million dolphin watching centre in Aberdeen could look.
The proposed centre at Greyhope Bay, near Torry, will feature a wildlife viewing platform and a variety of amenities to encourage science and education through performance and art, with conference rooms, a restaurant and theatre space.
The project is being led by marine scientist Fiona McIntyre, who wants to establish a new tourist and eco-friendly facility and build on the success of initiatives such as Dolphinwatch.
She has already laid out her vision to the city council, business support agencies, local and national environmental organisations, including the RSPB and Whale and Dolphin Conservation.
And this image among others, created by architect Professor Gokay Deveci, based at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture at RGU, will form part of a launch event on May 12 in Aberdeen.
This will feature an immersive 3D tour, entertainment from Scottish hit band Hue and Cry, and it will be hosted by Dougie Vipond.
