The good weather has seen Aberdeen's famous Winter Gardens attract a record number of visitors.
The Winters Gardens are among Scotland's most popular
More than 45,000 people visited the Duthie Park attraction in July - the highest number for 20 years.
Often called the "jewel in the crown" of the city's parks, the Winter Gardens house cacti and tropical plants.
It is thought the rising numbers of visitors may even mean the need for a new, larger building to house the collection and help education.
Manager Alan Findlay said a combination of hot weather and special events for children was behind much of the success.
He said: "The good weather brought thousands of people to the park and we are thrilled with the visitor figures."
