Scottish Secretary David Mundell has confirmed £3m funding for Inverness during a meeting with Highland Council.

The money would enable the local authority to go ahead with plans to upgrade the grounds and access to Inverness Castle.

A second project to create a free public access wi-fi scheme for the city is also expected to be funded.

The money will come from the UK government.
