More than 100 torchbearers will carry the Olympic flame through 17 communities in the north of Scotland on Monday culminating in an evening celebration in Aberdeen.
The flame begins its journey on day four of the Scots leg of the relay in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis.
It will be taken just over 138 miles by 109 torchbearers to Aberdeen, passing through Inverness, Aviemore, Carrbridge, Grantown-on-Spey, Tomintoul, Crathie, Ballater, Dinnet, Aboyne, Kincardine O'Neil, Banchory, Drumoak, Peterculter, Bieldside and Cults.
A cauldron will be lit to mark the culmination of the day's festivities. After the celebrations have finished, the flame will be transferred to a lantern and it will stay in Aberdeen overnight.
Monday's torchbearers include golfer and former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie, Angela Shearer, 27, from Huntly, who has raised £500,000 for Cancer Research UK, and Finlay Macleod, 16, from Inverness, who was born with no lower left arm, but has shown disability is no barrier to sport, playing football, golf and basketball.
The journey will start at 4.20am, when the first of the torchbearers, Kirsty Wade, 49, from the Isle of Lewis, will carry the flame to the Callanish Stones for sunrise. There will be a lone piper at the stones wearing a specially commissioned gold and white Harris Tweed.
Kirsty, a former runner, is a Commonwealth triple gold medallist and competed in the 1988 Seoul Olympics and the 1992 Barcelona Olympics.
Returning to the mainland, via Inverness, the flame will be carried to Balmoral Castle by Lauren Fraser, 14, from Dingwall. Lauren was selected for her achievements in cross country running and football, as well as her fundraising activities.
Foster carer Evelyn Capper, 60, from Ellon, will carry the Flame into the evening celebration at Castlegate Square in Aberdeen, which includes a performance from award-winning singer Emeli Sande.
