It was a Giant Christmas Fayre, but it also went down well with the wee folk.

Returning to Inverness Leisure Centre, the annual Giant Christmas Fayre organised by the firm Moray Markets & Car Boot Sales featured stalls from dozens of local artists, makers and bakers.

Other attractions included a Christmas face painter, live Christmas music and a visit from Santa Claus who flew in from Lapland.

There was also a nutcracker hunt, a meet and greet from Christmas donkeys and special charity stalls.

Organiser Ericka Murchison said: “We would like to say a massive thank-you to everyone who visited the Inverness Giant event and to everyone who provided stalls and other attractions.

“As always, there was a fantastic atmosphere on the day and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.

“The sun shone, the music was festive and lots of shopping was had.

“This year we felt there was a really great turn-out. Our events can only go ahead with the support of the public.

“Thanks again, Inverness, for supporting our small business – it really is very much appreciated.”
