The Carron Bar has hardly been out of the headlines in recent weeks.
The Stonehaven-based chip shop gained global attention after getting involved in a row with Aberdeenshire Council over its banner, proclaiming it as the birthplace of the deep fried Mars bar.
However, the chippy has now received a permanent commemorative blue plaque to celebrate its creation of the dish.
Council officials said the removal of the banner was "part of a plan to smarten up the appearance of the town".
But, as the news broke, it caused outrage throughout the north east and prompted local companies Lofthus Signs and Northsound 1 to join forces.
The companies have made a blue plaque to celebrate the creation of what they describe as "Scotland’s favourite deep fried chocolate delicacy".
And their gesture has delighted the shop's owner, Lorraine Watson.
She said: “We have been blown away by the support we have received and the plaque is the icing on the cake.
"We are really proud of our heritage and that our creation of the deep fried Mars Bar attracts tourists from around the world eager to sample something that’s a little bit different.”
