A historic church near Balblair on the Black Isle is in desperate need of restoration, according to the trust that looks after it.

The last surviving part of the roof collapsed under the weight of heavy snow last month.

The Kirkmichael Trust said it was now worried about the walls of the medieval church falling down.

Kirkmichael was built in the Middle Ages but in the 18th Century it fell into disuse.

Since then the building has slowly been deteriorating.

The trust is in the process of raising £600,000 for restoration work.

It has already had grants from Historic Scotland and the Big Lottery Fund.
