Tribute has been paid to a "cherished" teenager who died in a car crash in Aberdeenshire.
Zoe Dunn, 18, from Aboyne, was killed in the one-car collision on the B9077 South Deeside Road, between the Bridge of Feugh and Durris, on Thursday.
Her blue Renault Clio left the road and hit a tree.
Relatives spoke of their "immense sadness" at the death of the teenager, who had won a place at college to "follow her dream" to become a nurse.
In a statement, her family said: "Zoe had a love for life and shared her time with lots of friends and her long-standing boyfriend Scott Inglis, who she loved dearly.
"Zoe grew up with a love for animals, especially her dog, Maya, and caring for the horses, Cassie and Pixie.
"The family would like to extend their thanks for all the comfort and support they have received."
