TIBET'S spiritual leader the Dalai Lama visited Inverness in June at the end of a UK tour.

All 1300 tickets for his appearance at the city's Eden Court sold out in 24 hours, jamming phones at the theatre in the process.

Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama, who lives in exile in India, is one of the world's best known religious figures.

The Eden Court event included a formal speech by the Dalai Lama followed by a question and answer session with the audience.

Afterwards local singer Peter Kelly led the audience – including the Dalai Lama – in singing the Burns anthem Auld Lang Syne.

As part of his tour, the spiritual leader also visited Manchester, London, Edinburgh and Dundee.
