Scots have been asked to interpret the work of Robert Burns in pictures. Singer Eddie Reader reflected on Lovely Polly Stewart.
The images are part of a new Burns exhibition. Designer Janice Kirkpatrick focused on the bard's work, Tam o'Shanter.
Writer Christopher Brookmyre took a darker slant on Tam o'Shanter. The exhibition opened at Holyrood and will tour Scotland.
Address of Beelzebub provoked this response from Scotland's "Makar", or poet, Edwin Morgan.
The exhibition, also featuring Ayrshire farmer Neil Gillon's take on To a Mouse, marks the 250th anniversary of Burns' birth.
Photographers Tricia Malley and Ross Gillespie captured broadcaster Hardeep Singh Kohli musing over Such a Parcel of Rogues in a Nation.
Surrounded by his work, Burns' Holy Willie's Prayer was the order of the day for artist Peter Howson.
