Grave markers and a memorial cairn on a battlefield in Inverness have been bubble-wrapped in an effort to protect them during the construction of paths.

It is hoped the wrapping, more commonly used for protecting fragile ornaments, will guard against any damage from machinery on the Culloden Battlefield.
The National Trust for Scotland said it was important to remember the field was a burial ground.
An interpretation centre is also being built at the site of the 1746 battle.
Alexander Bennett, project co-ordinator, said: "The memorial cairn is a scheduled monument and a lasting symbol of Culloden to many visitors.
"People come from all over the world to visit the graves of their ancestors who fell in the battle and we do all we can to preserve the grave markers so future generations can maintain the tradition."
The battle - the last on British soil - effectively ended Jacobite hopes of restoring the exiled Stuart dynasty to the throne of Britain.
