Plans for a 25-metre tower in the North-east have been approved.
Telecommunications firm EE had applied to Aberdeenshire Council for the lattice tower, antenna, meter cabinets and generator near Invercauld Bridge in Crathie.
EE has said the installation would help the emergency services with network coverage.
The local authority has approved the plans for a site located within the Cairngorms National Park – a National Scenic Area and an Area Identified as Ancient Woodland.
Planning documents lodged said: “The designations grant the area a degree of protection from development that would have the potential for negative effects from development which are contrary to the key objectives of those designations.
“Despite these designations the development is one which will help with both public and emergency service communications in a remote rural area.
“While identified in the Ancient Woodland Inventory it would not require any removal of trees.”
