Three gold medal winners are amongst the athletes confirmed to take part in an Olympic parade through Aberdeen this weekend.
Canoeist Tim Baillie, rower Katherine Grainger and Paralympic cyclist Neil Fachie will board an open-topped bus on Sunday and visit the post boxes painted gold in their honour.
They are expected to be joined by swimmer Hannah Miley, shooter Jennifer McIntosh and Paralympic cyclist Lora Turnham.
The event, organised by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council, will begin at the Castlegate where people will have a chance to see the athletes and take photos, as they gather at the gold post box of Katherine Grainger at 10.30am.
STV has created an interactive map with the timings for the best vantage points to see the parade.

The bus, which will parade down Union Street from 11am until 11.30am, will be led by the Portlethen and District Pipe Band, and be followed by dozens of torchbearers, games makers and other volunteers.
It will take a detour of Golden Square at about 11.10am to the gold post box which recognises the achievement of Paralympic cyclist Fachie.
The parade will end at the top of Union Street at 11.30am, before the bus travels to Westhill at normal speed for the next leg of the tour, at Baillie’s gold post box on Westhill Drive.
The athletes will spend half an hour meeting the public and having their pictures taken before heading to Haddo House for a civic reception.
The Provost of Aberdeenshire, Councillor Jill Webster, said: “I would urge the residents of Aberdeen City and Shire to come out and celebrate the hard work which has gone into making this year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games such a huge success.
“We were delighted to see such a huge turnout when the Olympic Torch Relay reached our area, and I hope the returning athletes and volunteers receive the same reception from our residents.”
Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Councillor George Adam, added: "Everyone in the north-east is immensely proud of all of our athletes who gave their all in the Olympics and Paralympics, regardless of whether or not they won a medal, and equally proud of the area's torchbearers, volunteers and games makers.
“It is fitting that their hard work and achievements are properly celebrated and I think the parade is a fitting tribute to everyone involved.
"I look forward to welcoming them on Sunday and hope that the people of Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire will turn out to give them the heroes’ welcome they so richly deserve."
