Adaptive athletes are among the competitors from across the world who will jet in to take part in next month’s Mey Highland Games.
The games are on Saturday August 3 at the John O Groats showground.
Last year, Mey became the first Highland games to introduce para-athletics to a range of events including the traditional heavies.
Help for Heroes brought together a team of a dozen men and women from all over the UK, including wounded and injured veterans and serving personnel, to compete at the event.
This year more than 40 competitors are travelling to Caithness from across the UK in the hope of smashing the records they set last year.
Beyond the traditional heavies there are a vast range of competitive events open to adaptive athletes , including fun children’s races in line with the games’ ethos of inclusion.
All events will be cheered on by the games’ official chieftain, the Duke of Rothesay.
Mey Highland Games chairman councillor Andrew Sinclair said: “Our inclusivity is something of which we are very proud.
“The games are also designed to be welcoming to families, with lots of races and entertainment for children.
“They are a wonderful introduction to Highland hospitality and culture, hospitality and talent of the people of Caithness. We very much look forward to providing a warm welcome to guests from around the world.”
