Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have been seen towing caravans in the Highlands as they film a new series of The Grand Tour.
The presenters were each driving a classic car with a caravan attached, all decked out in interesting paintwork.
Clarkson's caravan was painted blue to match the vintage Lincoln he was driving, but May drew the most attention with a cow-themed caravan complete with udders.
It is thought that the show will see the presenters driving from Edinburgh to the Hebrides towing their vans.
Fans have spotted them at various stop-offs along the route, including at the Torridon Hotel in Wester Ross and the Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry.
It's clear the stars weren't staying in their caravans, but taking on some sort of towing challenge in the Amazon Prime series.
This is the third time the trio have visited the Highlands, with a trip in 2018 seeing them take on a series of challenges along the famous North Coast 500 route.
Two years before that, The Grand Tour team were spotted near Loch Ness.
Speaking of the Highlands, Richard Hammond told The Press and Journal: "The views were beautiful and it has been spectacular. I have enjoyed everything and the weather has been good."
The Highlands is a fantastic caravanning destination with sites close to stunning lochs, pristine beaches and imposing castles to choose from.
It represents a good opportunity for those wishing to enjoy a late season getaway in their caravan or motorhome.
The Grand Tour began in 2016 in the wake of Jeremy Clarkson leaving the successful BBC show Top Gear after a fracas with a producer.
Only one episode of The Grand Tour's fourth season was shown before production stopped due to the coronavirus outbreak.
As the scenes in the Highlands demonstrate, filming has begun again, with a COVID-19 testing van in tow.
