THE Friends of Macduff Aquarium have pulled off a real coup by persuading renowned wildlife cameraman and photographer Doug Allan to become their patron.
He has worked on many television programmes, including The Blue Planet, Planet Earth Live, Human Planet and Frozen Planet.
Mr Allan gave a talk at the aquarium in November 2016.
He said: "It was in the waters of the Scottish east coast that I learned to dive more than 45 years ago, so it was a real pleasure to be asked to be the centrepiece of an evening at Macduff Aquarium."
Friends chairman Keith Newton said: "It is a real measure of the value and the standing of the aquarium that someone as busy and knowledgeable as Doug is prepared to give us his time and energy."
