Three statues called Faith, Hope and Charity have been unveiled in the gardens of a city centre church in a £55,000 project.

The three once stood on the roof of a drapery store on Inverness High Street.

The building was demolished in the 1950s and the statues were bought by a collector on Orkney.

They were returned to the city following his death and Highland Council has had them installed on a plinth outside Ness Bank Church.

Fitting the head of Charity was the last bit of work needed before they were unveiled.

The project's cost was paid from the Inverness Common Good Fund.
