Staff at a Deeside garden centre are celebrating winning a top accolade.
The Mains of Drum at Drumoak was named ‘Best Garden Centre in Scotland’ at this week's Scottish Outdoor Leisure Awards 2016.
The judging process, which involved taking feedback from customers, saw the team at the centre near Banchory beat 10 other finalists from all over Scotland in their category.
Operations manager Craig Forbes, who took eight of his team to the glittering event in Glasgow, said: “We are thrilled to win this award and it has been a fantastic end to 2016.
"Listening to our customers' feedback is hugely important to us and we are delighted that their positive comments have helped us win this prestigious title.
"We have a fantastic team of staff here and this award is recognition of all of their loyalty and hard work.".
