House-hunters are queuing in the snow for a week to be first in line for new Aberdeenshire homes.
The queues for Saturday's sale started on Sunday
Some have been camping out in their cars since Sunday ahead of the Bett Homes development at Elrick going on sale on Saturday.
There are 56 homes, with prices for the four-bedroom detached homes ranging from £254,995 up to £324,995.
It comes after claims rising house prices in Grampian are preventing people getting on the property ladder.
Sleeping in their cars has been eased for some by working rota systems with relatives, and plenty of warm drinks.
Bett Homes managing director, Sandy McBride, said: "The first homes at the new phase of our Leddach Grange development in Elrick are to be released for sale on Saturday.
"We are aware that there are already a number of people queuing to reserve one of these prestigious properties.
"We anticipate that there will be a high level of demand for the 56 homes and this is an indication of the strength of the property market in the North East and the need for quality new homes in the area."
Recent figures put the cost of the average home in Aberdeen at almost £172,000 - almost seven times the average salary in the city.
