The heavy rain and thunder and lightning on Tuesday failed to deter this year's Buchan Queen and princesses from carrying out their regal duties.

Katie Woods, Shelly McWilliam and Sinead O'Brien shared an umbrella as they headed out and about to the various events in the Scottish Week programme.

Here they are pictured on their way to the Artists' Challenge event at the Rescue Hall.

We're hoping that the rain clouds go away for Scottish Week's big day tomorrow when The Blades will hopefully be making an appearance across the Blue Toon skies, and the ever-popular sandcastle competition gets underway.

Meanwhile all roads lead to the Lido for the Bay Swim, Raft Race, Kipper Barbecue, Peterhead Prowl and the grand fireworks display in the evening - but remember to take a brolly, just in case!
