A host of events are planned around Tayside for Hogmanay.
Funding totalling £14,000 has been handed out to groups in Dundee in a bid to ensure that people will begin 2016 in style.
Earlier this year, following public demand, plans were put in place to host a major party in the city centre.
However, for funding reasons, that fell through — but the council has backed smaller events elsewhere.
Individual grants between £500 and £3,000 have gone to groups including Grove Menzieshill Hockey Club for a Hockey Hogmanay Festival; the Central Baptist Church to hold a multicultural party; and a Hogmanay party at Mill 0’ Mains Community Centre, which aims to bring people of all ages together for an old-fashioned family gathering.
Meanwhile, the Fintry Families Hogmanay Hootsman event is a programme of activities which will include a family walk from Powrie Park to the Scottish Soldier that overlooks the city, poetry recitals, story telling and a buffet.
Douglasfield Tenants Social Group will welcome the new year with stovies and bannocks, and the Unicorn Preservation Society is holding a family ceilidh on the historic ship with traditional music and a performance from Sheena Wellington.
Meantime, Hindmarsh Tenants’ and Residents’ Association is to hold its own party.
Dundee Rep is hosting a Hogmanay ceilidh in the city’s Bonar Hall at 8pm for the second year.
The event was held last year and organisers say that its success paved the way for it to again be part of Dundee’s New Year’s Eve celebrations.
Guests will be greeted with a glass of fizz on arrival and supper will also be provided as the new year is brought in by Luke Brady’s Scottish Dance Band.
Clarks on Lindsay Street is also hosting a festive function with its Hogmanay Hoolie with The Mess Arounds.
A New Year’s Eve crossover service will take place at the City Church at 11pm.
Further afield in Tayside, a Hogmanay dinner-dance is taking place at Forbes of Kingennie.
