An Aberdeen hotel is planning to set up transparent igloos for socially distanced outdoor dining.
The Chester Hotel will also erect a 20 metre open-sided marquee as part of its plans for reopening.
The igloos and marquee alongside existing covered areas will help the hotel seat 100 guests with appropriate social distancing.
The measures will come into place when the Scottish Government gives the go ahead for open-air dining.
Owner Graham Wood said: “Although we have a large area of our outdoor seating area already under canopies, the addition of this 20-metre marquee will give us one of Aberdeen city’s largest outdoor spaces.
“We’ll be serving a comprehensive selection from our full bar food menu and everything from our drinks menu.”
The hotel has put a number of measures in place to ensure staff and guest safety, with an electrostatic fogging machine to sanitise all areas and free standing automatic hand sanitising units.
