A popular tourist spot in the north-east has enjoyed another bumper season.
The Stonehaven Open Air Pool had 37,445 people pass through its historic turnstiles since the season started at the end of May.
The 14-week season came to an end and saw a 24% increase in numbers from the previous year.
Owned by Aberdeenshire Council, the 50m outdoor pool is run by a group of volunteers who give up their time to make repairs and upgrades to the facility in the off-season.

Chairman of the Friends of the Stonehaven Open Air Pool Pete Hill said the warm sunny weather helped attract a lot of people.
He said: “This has been a memorable, historic season for the pool. We have welcomed almost 37,500 people to the pool this summer, which is an increase of more than 24% on last year, itself a successful season.
“The pool also won its fifth consecutive TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence and was admitted to the TripAdvisor Hall of Fame, a wonderful accolade for any attraction, but particularly for one which opens for only a short season.”
Chairwoman of Aberdeenshire Council’s communities committee councillor Anne Stirling congratulated the pool.
She said: “It’s great to see that Stonehaven Open Air Pool remains such a popular summer attraction.
“The fine weather this year has no doubt played its part, but the very hard work of the Friends group and council staff is what makes the pool such a special place to visit. ”
