Festive lights to make Christmas sparkle are going up across Argyll and Bute.
The switch-on dates have now been set and the first lights will herald the Christmas countdown from later this month.
More than 20 towns and villages will have festive displays.
Policy Lead for Roads and Amenity Services, Councillor Roddy McCuish, said: “Nothing says Christmas is coming for our communities like the switching on of the Christmas lights.
“Whether it’s lighting in streets and on buildings and festive trees put up specially for the occasion in our bigger towns, or existing trees dressed for the festive season in smaller communities, there will be sparkle and shine as we head into the festive season.”
Some of the lighting displays are arranged by Argyll and Bute Council, others by communities themselves.
