Duthie Park
Duthie Park's water has been used for model boats over the years

The 125th anniversary of Aberdeen's prestigious Duthie Park has been marked with a special event.

The park was donated by Elizabeth Duthie in 1881 in memory of relatives and became Duthie Park in 1883.

There was a marquee with cookery demonstrations, as well music, a model boat regatta, traditional children's games and old photography.

Many of the hundreds attending the event were wearing Victorian attire throughout the day.
