Nominations for this year's Scottish Week Best of Buchan awards arrived thick and fast to the Scottish Week Committee this year.
A host of finalists gathered at the town's Palace Hotel on Friday night for the annual awards ceremony, compered by Scottish Week treasurer Graham Barron.
The sell-out event kicked-ff with a two-course meal and some fizz, and entertainment was provided to get everyone in the celebrating mood.
The night was moved from the first Saturday of Scottish Week last year to the last Friday this year and was a huge success.
The awards were held in association with Waves Radio and every nominee was a fantastic example of the good in our town.
The winners were as follows:
