Ian McDougall, accompanied by three friends - Stuart Arbuckle, Colleen Kaiver and Lewis Burns - undertook a 300 foot abseil down the Red Head sea cliffs, just north of Auchmithie.
The adrenaline-fuelled event was in aid of Alzheimer’s Scotland, a cause close to their hearts.
He said: “We believe this terrible illness will touch most families at some point. Our abseil was done to raise public awareness and also boost funds for the charity.
“We have raised nearly £700, with more money still to come in.” Ian plans to do an abseil annually and support a different charity every year.
