Margaret Scott is celebrating her 98th birthday in a very unique way this year- by taking a ride in a helicopter.
The great-grandmother from Carsethorn, near Dumfries, has only been in an aircraft once before, and that was on a three seater plane on a family holiday to Whitley Bay in 1935.
Mrs Scott, known locally as "wee granny", lives independently in her own house and still frequently drives.
She recently bought herself a new car and said she was "upset" that it only came with a three year warranty.
She has always wanted to take a helicopter flight and her son Dougie managed to arrange it for her special birthday.
