Tim Baillie, Katherine Grainger and Neil Fachie will all attend the open-top bus parade.

Three gold medal winners are amongst the athletes confirmed to take part in an Olympic parade through Aberdeen this weekend.

Canoeist Tim Baillie, rower Katherine Grainger and Paralympic cyclist Neil Fachie will board an open-topped bus on Sunday and visit the post boxes painted gold in their honour.

They are expected to be joined by swimmer Hannah Miley, shooter Jennifer McIntosh and Paralympic cyclist Lora Turnham.

The event, organised by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council, will begin at the Castlegate where people will have a chance to see the athletes and take photos, as they gather at the gold post box of Katherine Grainger at 10.30am.
