The owners of a landmark Borders hotel that was badly damaged by a fire are hoping it will be back in operation by mid-July.
Flames ripped through the roof of the Gordon Arms Hotel, near St.Mary's Lochon, on Tuesday 12 May.
But the bar and kitchen in the 200-year-old property were unaffected.
Owner Susan Cree believes they can get that side of the business up and running again during the summer once they have a water supply and electricity.
She said the cause of the fire had not been established as there was nothing left of the roof - two theories being considered are a spark from the chimney or a mouse chewing through a wire.
She added:"What is keeping us going is that no one was hurt - it could have been much worse of the fire was at night."
A Shepard that witnessed the fire at the Gordon Arms Hotel says it went up in minutes.
John Allan was working in his fields when he noticed smoke billowing from the roof.
He ran in and told the staff and guests to evacuate the building.
Firefighters have been working through the night to tackle a blaze at a hotel in the Scottish Borders.
Investigations into the cause of the fire are now underway.
Station Manager Matt Acton explains what the crews have been dealing with:
