A multimillion pound flood protection scheme in Selkirk has won a national award.
The Selkirk Flood Protection Scheme won the Environmental Award at the Saltire Civil Engineering Awards on Tuesday 24 October.
It gives protection to around 600 properties from major flooding.
The £32.1million scheme has already protected properties from flooding on six separate occasions, such as storms Desmond and Frank in December 2015.
Features include a water management system that can hold the equivalent of 620 Olympic swimming pools' worth of water.
Footpaths and parks have also been provided in the area, as well as footbridges to give walkers and cyclists chance to explore the countryside.
More than 150 people have worked on the scheme - around half of them being Borders residents.
