The daily pumping of water from one of Europe's largest man-made holes has resumed after a 43-year break.
Rubislaw Quarry in Aberdeen - which is 450ft deep - is almost full of rainwater.
The site is credited with giving Aberdeen its Granite City name.
When quarrying ceased in 1969, the daily pumping of water also stopped.
The location was bought by two local businessmen in 2010 who are planning a Granite Heritage Centre on the site.
The developers say they hope that the centre, which would host conferences, events and weddings, would be open in two years.
Part of the iconic building would hang over the hole, which the businessmen hope would help draw tourists and locals to the site.
