10,000 for fossil-themed garden

A Highland museum has won a 10,000 grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to create a fossil-themed garden.

The new feature at the Hugh Miller Museum in Cromarty will have a large model of an ammonite fossil, which helped make the geologist famous.

The National Trust for Scotland property will also have a path area with other imitation fossils.

Mr Miller, who was born in Cromarty in 1802, was a skilled stonemason as well as a writer.
