Two people have appeared in court to face a breach of the peace charge following a protest on a Highland rig.
Greenpeace campaigners have been occupying a BP-contracted oil rig in the Cromarty Firth since Sunday.
Christopher Till and Paula Radley denied the charge when they appeared at Tain Sheriff Court.
It is alleged they, while acting with others, conducted themselves in a disorderly manner, boarded the rig and refused to leave – tethering themselves to the platform and placing themselves in danger while preventing others from going about their business.
The case against Till, of Browns Road, London, and Radley, of Bull Stag Green, Hartfield, will call again next month.
