An intricate operation took place yesterday as the six-tonne steeple on top of Nairn’s courthouse was removed to pave the way for upgrades to the 19th century building.
Nairn residents and visitors will next Sunday be treated to the unusual sight of the town's courthouse steeple being lifted off and placed in the rear car park.
An £800,000 revamp of the Nairn Courthouse and its stunning steeple is providing rare views over the seaside town.
Nairn residents are "delighted" as work gets under way on a town centre pedestrian crossing with lights that will make it safer for people with disabilities or just a slower pace, to use the road.
Nairn's 200-year-old courthouse is set to be restored to its former glory - by the masonry experts who transformed Inverness's Town House.
