Police are still on the hunt for those who torched a former north-east care home a year ago.
Officers have renewed an appeal to find those responsible for the Blythewood Care Home building fire.
More than 70 firefighters tackled the blaze for more than 10 hours at the site on School Road in Port Elphinstone in April last year.
Thick smoke could be seen throughout the town for a number of hours during the incident, with police at the time warning residents to avoid the area.
The historic building was almost completely destroyed and then had to be demolished for safety reasons. A major investigation was launched between Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
However, despite “extensive inquiries” no one has ever been charged.

Police have urged anyone with information to come forward.
The building was converted from a private residence into a care home in the early 1950s.
However, it had been empty for more than three years, after residents moved into the new £10 million Bennachie View facility.
Inspector Darren Bruce said: “Following the fire at Blythewood Care Home last year, extensive inquiries were carried out to identify those responsible.
“Numerous local residents came forward with information and were extremely helpful, however, at this stage no one has yet been charged.
“I would still urge anyone with information to contact the police on 101, using reference number 2314 of April 2018. It is never too late to come forward and any new information will be investigated.
“A vast amount of time was spent by emergency services attending and tackling a fire which should have never happened in the first instance. Such irresponsible behaviour which affects the local community will never be tolerated.”
Inverurie councillor Lesley Berry said: “It’s a shame that in a vibrant, thriving community such as Inverurie there are people unhappy enough to cause malicious damage with no thought to the consequences of their actions nor the costs incurred as a result.”
