Plans to see a former play area transformed into an adventure playpark have been approved.
The National Trust for Scotland (NTS), which runs Crathes Castle, applied for the planning permission in May.
Aberdeenshire Council has now granted the organisation “full planning permission”.
As part of the development’s proposal, the trust wants to put forward a new design which includes a timber tower, tree house, walkway, zip wire, sand pit, swings, a slide and a walkway to the central level of the tower, which would be wheelchair and buggy accessible.
In a letter detailing the council’s decision to approve the park, it said: “The playpark is considered to enhance the facilities provided within Crathes Castle and the estate while ensuring consideration is taken of the sensitive location.”
The proposal was also considered a compliment to the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2017.
