Work to tackle a landslip at a north-east village is entering its final phase.
Crovie was badly affected by a landslide in September 2017 with residents forced to travel in and out of the village on foot for more than a year.
This weekend will see road resurfacing and other finishing works take place and that will mean restricted pedestrian access for up to six days.
The path between the village car park and the top of the access steps is not expected to be accessible in the interest of safety until Thursday.
Access to Crovie on foot will be via the Mink Howe Road and down the middle access road.
All vehicles are asked to continue using the informal car park at the top of the Mink Howe Road and not to park down the middle access road as the area is required for emergency vehicle access only.
Aberdeenshire Council said it is hoped the road can reopen to traffic late next week.
