More than 25,000 people turned out to see the Olympic Torch arrive in the centre of Aberdeen.
North-east singer/songwriter Emeli Sande headlined a free open-air concert at the Castlegate, which also included performances from dance act Twist and Pulse and local dancers.
Grampian Police praised revellers for their good behaviour, adding that there were no arrests and no trouble at the event.
Scottish golfer Colin Montgomerie carried the flame on part of its journey between Holburn Street and the middle of Union Street.
The Ryder Cup winning captain later described carrying the torch as “up there with some of the best moments of my life.”
Aberdeen City Council foster carer Evelyn Capper enjoyed the once in a lifetime opportunity when she lit the Olympic cauldron in front of thousands of Aberdonians just after 8pm on Monday.
Evelyn and her husband, oil industry consultant Harry, 59, have been giving vulnerable children in Aberdeen a reliable and safe home since 1992. More than 60 children have been welcomed through the Capper’s door over the years with Evelyn.
She said: “It was such a massive honour to be asked to be a torchbearer. I felt very lucky to take part, especially when you hear some of the wonderful people taking part and the amazing things they have all achieved.”
More than 100 torchbearers carried the flame through 17 communities across the Highlands and Aberdeenshire on the 24th day of the relay, visiting places including Aviemore, Carrbridge, Grantown-on-Spey, Tomintoul, Crathie, Dinnet, Aboyne, Kincardine O'Neil, Banchory, Drumoak, Peterculter, Bieldside and Cults.
It visited the Royal Family's Scottish residence of Balmoral Castle, where Lauren Fraser, 14, carried the flame on to the estate, near Ballater in Aberdeenshire, to cheers from the gathered crowd.
Lauren, from Dingwall, near Inverness, was selected as torchbearer because of her achievements in cross-country running and football.
She said: "It's just amazing to have done that. I love running, so to be a part of the Olympics is just brilliant. When I found out I'd been nominated I was really shocked because there's so many people that entered. I didn't actually think I'd have much of a chance but I'm just so overwhelmed and happy about it.
"It's really special that so many people would turn up to watch. The atmosphere is just brilliant. It's been said that this is the best route, taking in Balmoral, and I think it probably is."
The Olympic Torch left the Granite City on Tuesday morning, starting at BP’s headquarters before crossing the Haudagain roundabout and being taken along Anderson Drive.
