Around 1,500 people descended on Turriff for the town’s annual Hogmanay celebrations.
Revellers were treated to musical entertainment from Rianne Downey, Empire the Band and the Red Hot Chili Pipers at Hogmanay in the Haughs.
And Jim Wilson, of organiser Grampian Events, hailed the success of this year’s edition as the north-east welcomed in a new decade.
He said: “It was a really good night.
“The audience were really good and there was a lot of really nice interaction between them and the acts.
“We managed to put together a really good lineup and we had very nice comments on that.
“Both Rianne Downey and Empire the Band had never played the north-east before. That meant they were bringing new music to a lot of different people.
“And for Hogmanay, you don’t get anyone better than the Red Hot Chili Pipers.
“They really are the main pipe band for events like this and people really enjoy it when they come on stage.
“All the comments we have had about them have been really positive. The feedback we have had has been great.”
