Work to repair a landslip which has caused access problems for residents in an Aberdeenshire coastal village will begin next week.

A temporary retaining wall built at Harbour Road in Gardenstown - the only road access to the lower part of the village - partially collapsed last month.

The road has been largely closed since November.

A contractor has now been appointed to carry out the work above Harbour Road.

Aberdeenshire Council said the work, which will start on Monday, is expected to take about seven weeks.
