A man has died following a road accident in Aberdeenshire.
The 30-year-old driver was the sole occupant of a red Seat Ibiza which crashed on the A93 between Braemar and Crathie at about 01:00.
The road was closed for several hours before reopening just after 11:00.
The accident has caused delays to a running event being held at nearby Balmoral Castle.
Police have appealed for witnesses.
