A historic North-east castle is set to feature in a popular TV show.
BBC One’s Antiques Roadshow will be filming at Crathes Castle later this year.
The team of experts from the show, along with presenter Fiona Bruce, will be on hand to look at hidden gems and family heirlooms brought along by the public.
The programme, which last year celebrated four decades, will film at the castle on July 1.
Robert Murphy, series producer of Antiques Roadshow, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors when we bring Antiques Roadshow to Crathes Castle.
“It’s more than 10 years since the Roadshow was last in Aberdeen, so we’re looking forward to a bumper turnout and can’t wait see what kind of cherished objects emerge from the attic.
“It’s a great, free, family day out and you can see how we make one of BBC One’s most popular programmes.
“Our team of experts are on hand to help visitors discover the hidden history of their objects – you never know, it might just be your item that turns out to be something very special and potentially very valuable!”
The 41st series of the show, which is regularly watched by almost six million people, will be filmed throughout the spring and summer at a variety of locations across the UK.
Ms Bruce said: “Can this year be even better than our last? We’ll have to go some way to top the most valuable Faberge ever seen on the programme, a correction to Darwin’s theory of evolution by the great man himself and one of the best collections of show business memorabilia ever seen by our experts.
“But I have every confidence we’ll do it and the thousands of people that come along to see us will pull some extraordinary things out of their bags/trolleys/bits of newspaper/suitcases/boats – and one year even out of a cart led by a dog.
“I can’t wait.”
Doors open at 9.30am at the castle on the day and close at 4.30pm, entry to the show is free with everyone is welcome. No tickets or pre-registration is required.
Visitors can just turn up on the day – however, they can also share their stories about the items they are bringing along on the show’s website.
