Huge crowds headed to Inverness for a major pre-Christmas craft fair at Eden Court.
Thousands of people attended the art, craft and food event organised by Black Isle-based Exclusively Highlands over three days, starting on Friday and ending yesterday.
A similar fair held just a couple of weeks ago broke all previous records when more than 6,000 people attended on the Saturday alone.
The organisers said that there had seen slightly more people through the gates this time, though not quite as many as the 10,000 that had been forecast before the event.
Melanie McKay, from Exclusively Highlands, said: “It’s been a very busy weekend. It’s been extra busy at Eden Court because the pantomime is on as well.”
Fiona Logue, director of Craft Scotland, Creative Scotland’s specialist body set up to champion the craft industry is impressed with anticipated visitor numbers.
She said: “It is truly encouraging to see the large numbers who appreciate that a locally handmade gift is something to be greatly valued.”
