Ian Rankin on the winning Star of Caledonia landmark
A giant star has been selected as the winning design for a landmark sculpture on the Scotland-England border.
Cecil Balmond's Star of Caledonia was chosen by the judges for the Border Crossing project at Gretna.
The idea will now be developed throughout the summer before a planning application is submitted.
The design is "futuristic" and "quite revolutionary", said Scottish novelist Ian Rankin, after inspecting the design.
