Players from as far afield as Orkney were part of a record turnout at the annual Scottish Women's Under-15 National Camp at Tulliallan in Fife last weekend.
The Scottish FA has been running the training camp for seven years, bringing together the most talented 12 to 15-year-olds from six regional squads to receive specialist training and meet members of the Scotland Women's National Team.
Scottish FA Head of Girls' and Women's Football, Sheila Begbie, said: "We have developed the camp into a hugely positive experience for the girls, which leaves a lasting impression when they return home and continue their development as players.
"The record number of players who attended is testament to the hard work being carried out to develop the girls' and women's game in Scotland.
"The camp offers the opportunity for players to bond with their team mates from the regional squads, which I think can have a lasting benefit.
"This is a unique opportunity for these players and I believe the standard of professionalism is growing each year.
"It is important players learn from a young age what it takes to become an elite player."
The camps also offer the opportunity for Scotland under-15 and 17 national squad coaches to conduct a talent identification for future squads.
Scotland internationals Gemma Fay, Shannon Lynn, Frankie Brown, Emma Mitchell and Leanne Ross attended to impart advice on what it takes to make it to the top of the game.
Sheila said: "It is important for the girls' and women's game to have role models and ambassadors.
"We were delighted that Scotland internationals were there to share their experience of developing into the players they are today."
Along with intense training sessions and practice matches, one of the camp's more light hearted traditions was upheld. Sheila explained: "We had our annual Tulliallan's Got Talent competition which was as competitive as ever. The Central Region were the winners this time round."
