Investigations continue into a house fire which left one woman dead in Aberdeenshire at the weekend.
The resident, named locally as Pat Bedford, died at the scene of the blaze at Cruden Bay on Sunday morning.
Nearly 30 firefighters attended the fire at a house on Blackcraig Road at around 10.50am.
Four fire engines, an incident support vehicle and a fire investigation unit were all stationed outside the detached property.
