Special Auchenblae meeting over plans to replace Drumtochty Arms
A special meeting is to be held over plans to replace an Aberdeenshire hotel which was demolished after an explosion in 2009.
The explosion at the Drumtochty Arms in Auchenblae caused injuries but no fatalities.
There is now a planning application for a new hotel, cafe and shop in the village.
Aberdeenshire Council's Kincardine and Mearns area committee will consider the plans on Tuesday.
