Supporters of Scottish independence from across the north are being urged to join like-minded people for a march through Inverness later this month.
The aim of the event on Saturday, January 25, is to demonstrate the strength of feeling for a second independence referendum.
The organisers of the "freedom march" describe themselves as a small team of Scottish independence supporters, not associated with All Under One Banner or any other group, who have come together to unite the Yes movement in the Highlands.
They say it will be a "joyful celebration" and that so far more than 3000 people have expressed an interest.
The march will start in the city's Walker Park at 1pm. The procession will walk through the Crown area, down Stephen's Brae, onto the High Street, across the River Ness and along to the Fishermen's Car Park on Bught Road.
It will be led by musicians from Saor Alba Pipes and Drums.
For those with mobility concerns or young children who may struggle with the steepness of Stephen's Brae, there will be a secondary starting point at the bottom of Stephen's Brae.
