Guests at a luxury Deeside holiday resort are being urged to think before using too much water due to a “major” leak.
Water is being brought on to the Hilton Grand Vacations Club site at Craigendarroch, near Ballater, in tankers due to the ongoing problem.
And management at the resort have sent letters to all guests, advising them of the problem.
The facility asked guests to be mindful of the amount of water they used during their stay as it had already lost a “significant” amount.
The letter states: “Please be advised we are currently investigating a major water leak on the estate. We are still determining the source of the leak and are having water delivered by tanker until the issue can be resolved.
“Due to the significant volume of water being lost, we would appreciate your consideration regarding your water usage during your stay.”
Kevin Speidel, vice president of resort operations at Hilton Grand Vacations confirmed they were working to fix the issue and expected to know the cause and have it resolved by Saturday.
No guests had been turned away from the resort.
A Scottish Water spokesman confirmed it had been assisting the site.
