Aileen Wright has celebrated her 100th birthday shielding with family in Oban.

The centenarian, who was born and brought up in Cullen, Banffshire, and moved to Aberdeen in her early 20s, spent her special day with daughter Margaret Batty and son-in-law Bob at their home in Coe Gardens where she has been staying in lockdown.

As well as tucking into cake, the family went online to video chat with further-flung relatives, including Aileen’s other daughter Elaine Raith, who lives in Singapore.

With lovely bouquets and presents from her children and grandchildren, a birthday card from the Queen was also a highlight of her special day.
