Police have started an investigation into the theft of thousands of pounds worth of antiques from a house in Fife.
The break-in at the house in Colinsburgh took place between 18 December and Sunday, 23 December.
The stolen items included a grandfather clock, an antique spinning wheel, Japanese vases and highland dress accessories including a dirk, a skean dhu and a sporran.
Detectives have asked antiques dealers to watch out for suspicious items.

"Some of the items are quite big and this crime would have taken time to complete."
