A Doric trail is one of the initiatives being considered to strengthen tourism in the North-east.
Aberdeenshire Council is looking to develop the region as the centre for Doric language and poetry.
The local authority is proposing to work towards projects including the creation of an Aberdeenshire Doric and traditional music trail.
The council could also help set up a festival of Doric culture and music.
A report by director of education and children’s services Maria Walker said the council hopes to establish the trail plus support and develop “key venues”.
She added: “For example supporting the Grassic Gibbon Centre’s development as both a visitor attraction and as the source of learning and developing Banchory Museum with a traditional music focus.”
The paper, which will be considered by members of the education, learning and leisure committee, also suggests the development of a Doric festival.
This is proposed to take place over a week or two weeks, “reflecting the needs of the tourist sector”.
The report says projects are being considered to strengthen the region’s tourism profile, create a clearer identity and a stronger sense of civic pride.
The report will go before councillors on Thursday.
