Protesters gathered in Inverness today as Highland councillors prepare to determine the fate of a controversial riverside art project.
Construction of the My Ness project, which includes curving walls for opposite banks of the River Ness, was suspended in July after a petition against it gathered 2,500 signatures.
Councillors are currently meeting at the local authority’s Glenurquhart Road headquarters in Inverness to determine its fate.
The previous design, which was officially called the Gathering but became better known as the tilting pier, was abandoned following a public outcry in July 2016.
Opponents of the new design believe it will spoil the landscape of the riverside.
Around 30 people from campaign group Open Ness waited for councillors to arrive for today’s meeting and are making their feelings known inside the chamber.
Helen Smith from the group said: “I’m not against public art at all, that is not what we are saying. This is the wrong project in the wrong place.”
Keep an eye on the Press and Journal website for further updates once councillors come to a decision.
