Scottish novelist and poet Nan Shepherd will feature on the Royal Bank of Scotland's new £5 note when it comes into circulation later this year.
The announcement came as the bank unveiled the designs for its new £5 and £10 polymer notes.
Scientist Mary Somerville had already been selected for the £10 note, which is due to enter into circulation next year.

They will be the first women to appear on the bank's main issue notes.
