The first of a series of public consultations for a planned wind farm project off the coast of Aberdeen is being held in Peterhead.

The application for 11 turbines is being made by the Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) in cooperation with Vattenfall and Technip.

The project is called the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre (EOWDC).

The Peterhead event was in the town's Palace Hotel from 14:00 until 20:00.

The following four days will see the event in Newburgh's Udny Arms on Tuesday, Ellon's Kirk Centre on Wednesday, Balmedie's White Horse Inn on Thursday, and Aberdeen's Double Tree Hilton at the beach on Friday.
