Proposals have been submitted for repairs to the Fettercairn Royal Arch in Fettercairn.
Aberdeenshire council lodged the plans to repair the Victorian landmark.
The repairs would include the removal of vegetation and the stonework being repointed.
The finials at the top of the arch would also be replaced if the proposals are approved by the local authority.
The arch was constructed in 1864 to commemorate the visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to Fettercairn three years before.
Emergency repairs were carried out on the listed structure earlier this year after strong winds caused damage, including knocking one of the finials off entirely.
The council has been trying to discourage large vehicles from going under the arch.
If approved, the proposed repairs would be completed in two phases.
The first phase would see the removal of vegetation with two finials removed.
Then the rest of the work would be completed by September including repointing the stonework.
