Tributes have been paid after a 38-year-old woman died in a crash on a north-east road.
Casey Rodger, from Balmedie, was driving a black Volkswagen Golf when her vehicle hit a stone wall outside Trump International Golf Links on Saturday afternoon.
The road at Menie was closed for several hours while emergency services attended the incident.
Police confirmed Ms Rodger was the only occupant of the car and urged witnesses to come forward.
The road, which was recently bypassed by the opening of the Balmedie to Tipperty section of the Aberdeen Western Peripheral Route, was closed while accident investigators examined the scene on Saturday evening.
Police, fire crews and paramedics were called to the site of the tragedy just after 3pm and remained there for around 11 hours.
Mid Formartine councillor Paul Johnston told the Evening Express his thoughts were with everyone involved in the incident.
He said: “It is an absolute tragedy that we lose people on our roads.
“It shows you that, just because the road has been bypassed by the new dual carriageway, it doesn’t mean it is safer.”
