Thousands of people braved the cold to watch Shetland's world famous Up Helly Aa fire festival.
The annual event celebrates the end of Yule and culminates in the burning of a mock Viking longship in Lerwick.
A 1000-strong parade of torch-bearers was led by a jarl squad in full Viking armour on Tuesday, headed up by guizer jarl Mark Evans.
The group visited the British Legion, Bressay Ferry Terminal and the Shetland Museum before the burning at Hillhead.
Before the main event, children took part in a junior Viking parade complete with their own jarl squad and longship.
Up Helly Aa celebrations are held across the islands in places including Scalloway, Northmavine, Norwick, Bressay and Cullivoe.
