A demonstration has been held by people opposed to Highland Council's preferred route for its new Inverness West Link.

Organisers of the Save Canal Park campaign have concerns the road will ruin valued green space.

More than 100 people turned out for the campaign's event in Whin Park to oppose the planned route called Option Six.

The council said the road would result in the loss of one of four sports pitches, but added that new improved facilities would also be created.

It said a new pitch would be created at Ness-side, and there would be a new four-pitch sports facility at Torvean.

The local authority said the West Link was needed to help relieve pressure on the city centre and improve connections to the A82.
