A single malt whisky has been created to help raise money for a museum's £3m redevelopment project fund.

Called Cuidich'n Righ, proceeds from sales of the limited edition spirit will go to the Highlanders museum in Fort George, near Ardersier.

The malt has been created by Elgin-based whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail.

Museum chairman, Maj Gen Seymour Monro, said the site served as a memorial to Scottish regiments.

He added: "This is an important project which will deliver a quality museum, fit for the 21st Century."
