Banchory got into the jubilee mood by adorning the town in bunting.
As part of the forthcoming Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations, Banchory Business Association (BBA) bought bunting with support from local businesses and Aberdeenshire Council.
The BBA’s chairman Dick Taylor said they were grateful to local builders Bruce McCombie for draping the bunting throughout the town centre.
All shops are participating in jubilee celebrations by decorating their shop windows.
And the Business Association said this week they will be awarding a prize to the best decorated shop window.
