Temperatures across the north-east soared as the UK experienced the hottest Easter on record.
Highs of more than 21C were recorded in Aboyne and at Fyvie Castle, the hottest spots in Scotland.
The highs beat the previous record for Easter Sunday, which was also set at Aboyne four years ago – and temperatures could continue to rise throughout the afternoon.
A spokesman for the Met Office said: “At 1pm temperatures of 21.3C were recorded at Aboyne and Fyvie Castle.
“The previous record was 20.7C, which was also set at Aboyne. That was on April 5 2015.
“Temperatures could continue to climb as the day goes on.”
