On a lovely dry and mild Sunday morning, the Lochalsh branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland held its Armistice Day parade and service.
About 15 members paraded and assembled with the colours at the Lochalsh War Memorial at Balmacara.
They were led by a small contingent of Lochalsh Junior Pipe Band under Niall Stewart, who also played The Lament. Several other local organisations were also on parade.
The colour party was Richard Talbot and Seamus Maguire. The bugler was Douglas Strachan from Breakish, who played the Last Post and Reveille after the two-minute silence.
Parade commander was Paul Newton and the salute was taken by Lt Cdr Andy Will MBE RN.
A large crowd watched 15 local organisations lay wreaths. Reverend Fred Vincent conducted a short service. Terry Grant narrated the homily.
Following the parade a service was held in Kyle Church of Scotland, conducted by Rev Fred Vincent and afterwards a collection was taken for the Earl Haig Fund. Soup, tea and sandwiches were served in the church hall.
Wreaths were also laid at Plockton and Glenelg war memorials and at Glenshiel church.
