Lady Fraser of Carmyllie received an MBE for her services to charity in Edinburgh on Tuesday.
A ceremony at the Palace of Holyroodhouse saw a host of charitable and celebrity names receive honours ahead of a garden party hosted by the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh.
Lady Fraser is well known for her work with organisations such as the Ninewells Cancer Campaign, the Amy Barnet Skea Trust, Caring for Kids, Tenovus Tayside, Children in Need, and the University of Abertay Foundation.
She attended the ceremony with her children, Jane, Jamie and Katie and said she was thrilled to receive the award.
“I am particularly delighted to have received it at Holyrood since all of the charitable work that I have done is in Scotland,” she said.
“It is lovely for me that the family were able to be there with me for the ceremony.
“I feel my award reflects the hard work that has been out in by so many dedicated people I have been fortunate enough to work with.”
