A flag raising ceremony is to take place later this month outside Inverness Town House to mark Armed Forces Day.

Armed Forces Day is on June 24 but celebrations begin on June 19, which is when the flag raising ceremony will take place.

Inverness Provost Glynis Campbell Sinclair said: “We will honour our armed forces on June 19 in Inverness with this simple flag raising ceremony to recognise the work that they do protecting our communities and country.

“Our Armed Forces couldn’t do their job without the incredible support of their family and friends.

“Highland Council continues to support the armed forces through its lead role within the Armed Forces Covenant which is a commitment and demonstration of our support alongside our Partners, to our Armed Forces Community."

The ceremony will begin at 11am and will be attended by the Provost of Inverness and Bart Lucas, chairman of the Inverness branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland.
