The third Stonehaven Real Ale Festival is getting under way.

The three-day event runs until Saturday at Stonehaven Town Hall and will feature beers from more than 60 Scottish breweries.

Money raised will go to two local charities, the Maritime Rescue Institute and Stonehaven Sea Cadets.

Organiser Robert Lindsay said: "The hall is set up, volunteers have come forward, the beer is here - all we need now is folk to have a great time."
