A small disused lighthouse on Loch Ness is in danger of falling into ruin, a Highlands MSP has warned.
Labour's David Stewart hopes to secure greater protection for Bona Lighthouse at Lochend, near Inverness.
The 19th Century building was at one time the smallest manned lighthouse in Britain.
Mr Stewart has sought a meeting with its owner, British Waterways, and will table parliamentary questions to highlight the matter.
The MSP has met with local resident Jeff MacLeod, who is keen to see the lighthouse saved.
Mr Stewart said: "It is a great shame that this lighthouse, which may be our only inland lighthouse, is being left to go to rack and ruin.
"There were proposals a couple of years ago to develop the site as a multi-million pound tourist attraction.
"I think there was some local resistance to this - but if there are to be no plans for development British Waterways must do something to protect this key building."
