WILLOW grown on both sides of Ross-shire is taking pride of place in the county town.

Unique baskets hand-made by crafter Tim Palmer are making an appearance in The Alchemist Gallery in Dingwall.

Mr Palmer uses willow grown on the Black Isle in the east and Diabaig in Wester Ross in his work. It also incorporates birch bark, cherry wood and rush. Designs vary from a sturdy Irish potato skib to a lattice technique rush bowl and large, shallow Celtic knot design.
