A royal restaurant is set to open this week to help raise money for victims of the devastating Storm Frank floods.
The Rothesay Rooms in Ballater will officially open on Friday.
Set up by Prince Charles’ charity, the Ballater Flood Appeal, the initiative will raise money to help the community recover.
More than 300 homes and 60 businesses in the village were devastated during Storm Frank when the River Dee overflowed on December 30.
Ballater was one of the worst-hit areas last winter when wild weather battered the North-east.
A gift shop forming part of the initiative was opened by the Duke in October, while the restaurant’s opening was pushed back to allow for staff to be recruited.
The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay visited Ballater to open the Highgrove shop and Camilla also unveiled a plaque to mark the occasion.
The restaurant, which can seat 40 and will offer a seasonal menu using local ingredients, occupies the former Co-op building on Netherley Place.
