The free event at Inverness Leisure attracted visitors from far afield and had more than 90 stalls with a huge variety on offer.

Local businesses showcased their art, gin, crafts and many other items.

The event ran from 10am-3:30pm on Sunday and was busy from start to finish.

People of all ages enjoyed the fun as children were treated to face painting and an early visit to Santa at his grotto.

A local singer, Katie Watson, performed on the day to set the atmosphere and there were props to take memorable pictures.

MFR Cash for Kids also had a stand where they hosted a raffle and took donations to help their Christmas toy initiative.

Allana Mackay, charity executive at MFR Cash for Kids, said: "We are delighted to be given the opportunity to run a raffle at The Giant Christmas Market in Inverness. Every single penny is absolutely vital to us especially at this time of year.

"Not only are we inundated with applications from service providers such as school teachers and social workers for support in helping Santa but we have many emergency applications too. The generosity of the general public is tremendous and together we can ensure that every child wakes up with a smile on Christmas morning."
