A tree at Blair Drummond Safari Park in Stirling has been decorated with the help of a crane.

Hector Muir, director of the park, donned a Santa Claus costume to place a star at the top of the tree as the centre began preparing for the festive season.

There will also be daily drive-by visits from Father Christmas.
