The Princess Royal has visited Dumfries to unveil a sculpture to mark the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
The installation - a large block of carved sandstone - is called Robert Burns Rock.
It has been crafted by stonemason David Little from a design by artist David Gulland and reflects elements of poems like Tam o' Shanter and To a Mouse.
The rock has been gifted to Dumfries by the People's Project and is sited at the gates to St Michael's Church.
